It’s Now Or Never: Elvis Presley

The early Elvis Presley was irresistible. Of course here he has stolen ‘O sole mio’.
It’s now or never,
come hold me tight
Kiss me my darling,
be mine tonight
Tomorrow will be too late,
it’s now or never
My love won’t wait.

When I first saw you
with your smile so tender
My heart was captured,
my soul surrendered
I’d spend a lifetime
waiting for the right time
Now that your near
the time is here at last.

It’s now or never,
come hold me tight
Kiss me my darling,
be mine tonight
Tomorrow will be too late,
it’s now or never
My love won’t wait.

Just like a willow,
we would cry an ocean
If we lost true love
and sweet devotion
Your lips excite me,
let your arms invite me
For who knows when
we’ll meet again this way

It’s now or never,
come hold me tight
Kiss me my darling,
be mine tonight
Tomorrow will be too late,
it’s now or never
My love won’t wait

Che bella cosa na jurnata ‘e sole
n’aria serena doppo na tempesta
pe ll’aria fresca pare già na festa
che bella cosa na jurnata ‘e sole.
Ma n’atu sole cchiu’ bello, oi ne’
‘o sole mio sta nfronte a te
‘o sole, o sole mio
sta nfronte a te
sta nfronte a te.
Quanno fa notte e’sole se ne scenne
me vene quase ‘na malincunia
sotto a fenesta toia restarria
quanno fa notte e ‘o sole se ne scenne.
Ma n’atu sole cchiu’ bello, oi ne’
‘o sole mio sta nfronte a te
‘o sole, o sole mio
sta nfronte a te
sta nfronte a te.

And they were both parodied in the ice-cream advertisement, ‘Just One Cornetto’
