We knew it was coming, but when would that be?
We waited, and waited, then shouted with glee!
It was coming soon, but not til after Sanremo;
How long could I last, without a new song from Il Volo?
We then heard the news, it was on Amazon.IT!
There I went with my visa, to order it quickly!
I wanted it now, so express shipping I paid;
Hoping and praying, it would not be delayed!
Three weeks and counting, how much more can I bear?
I kept watch on my email, when would it be there?
The contest had started and Il Volo appeared;
Singing their hearts out, while everyone cheered!
But on Friday the 13th, not bad luck for me,
I read in my mail; the CD would be early!
I jumped up and down, how lucky am I?
I’ll have it soon in my hands; I could just cry.
The day finally came, it was arriving today;
I waited and paced, for the delivery all day.
I tracked it online, it came straight from Milan.
On to Bergamo and Brussells, then finally MY town!
I raced home to get it, but it was not there?
DHL had not come yet – how much more could I bear?
I went to the store, to pick up my dinner.
They had til 8pm, then there was a knock at my door!
It was here, finally, at last, it was here!
I’m sorry, but I could not wait to open it, I fear.
I quickly took pictures and then opened it with care;
Staring lovingly at my hand, so wishing they were there!
I listened and listened, and listened again.
Over and over I played it, I did not want it to end.
But bedtime was coming, I so needed my sleep,
I can listen again tomorrow, for I know it will keep.
Il Volo is love, Grand Amore, to be exact!
The heck with all the critics, they are just hacks!
So listen with joy, Il Volovers everywhere;
And know that we give them our tender loving care!
