Stairway to the Sea: A Sunday Naples song

For my birthday, a friend kindly gave me a CD of Neapolitan classics, sung in the local language by the incomparable Roberto Murolo, a Naples legend whose velvety voice interpreted the songs of his homeland after WW2 until his death 10 years ago.

This one, Scalinatella, tells of a small staircase leading down to the water at Posilippo where a man wistfully waits for his girl, who has fallen in love with a man from Capri and who will shortly leave him, down the stairs and then away by sea.
