Well, uh, here's a delayed Banson's Aria post!
I've always understood the lyrics to be just Italian music terms with a few other words mixed in that are either from other languages or just straight-up Italian-sounding gibberish. Then I found this transcription:
Some of the words sounded different to me than what they wrote... and also 'smurfy'... so I did some googling and ran it by an Italian (thanks Darkonius!):ProphetStorm wrote: I'm listening to his theme as we speak. A rough transcription:
Vortato staccato y fortissimo, Rubato allegro ooh la la!
Argilmente prelectorgino, smorfioso tese tuba!
Garbamente galderoso, stracci carlando naruna!
Largamente imitando imperioso di colta!
No clue what 'vortato, argilmente, prelectorgino, galderoso, carlando' or 'naruna' are, but what I have been able to translate is 'rapid and loud, stolen quickly, ooh la la.' I think Smorfioso, oddly enough, is Italian for 'smurfy', and Garbamente is probably clothed., The last phrase, largamente imitando imperioso di colta, seems to be 'largely imitation, but sounding important,' summing up the whole gist of the song.
