Duration: 4:40 mins
Description:  
A historic song by Enrico Lenni, signifying the importance of Rome, and the football team that introduced football to the Citta Eterna, The Eternal City. Caput Mundi is Latin for capital of the world, which Rome truly is, and we’re invited to take a look from the perspective of a laziale walking the streets. A couple notes in the translation were added for clarity. Enjoy.

Original Lyrics
Me so' svejato presto stamattina, la Lazio gioca a casa, ancora c'e' la brina Er fatto e' che de sabato la notte dormo poco me giro e me rigiro...
poi, dicono che gioco.
Due passi in centro, un cornetto e un cappuccino, l'edicola di fronte,
non ce spenno piu' un quattrino,
e' ora de anna' al campo,
io ce abito vicino,
a Roma ce so nato,
ce vado in motorino.
Citta' de Roma,
te vojo bene,
er Tevere me scorre nelle vene nun po esse che con un "la" c'hanno rovinato una citta' che dai tempi de Nerone gia' giocavano a Pallone come non avere appunti, solo per te Caput Mundi.
Eppoi tutta la gente, in mezzo a tanti amici,
in campo una legione che stritola nemici,
e me rivado al centro con la bandiera al vento cor foco che c'ho dentro fa freddo e nun lo sento.
Arrivo qui a San Pietro,
che er Papa ce vo' bene,
ce da' la benedizione,
so gioie nun so pene,
eppoi ritorno a casa,
c'ho fame e so' contento,
te guardo sei piu' bella...
lo sai che avemo vinto! Citta' de Roma, te vojo bene, er Tevere me scorre nelle vene nun po esse che con un "la" c'hanno rovinato una citta' sta tranquilla c'e' la Lazio, che gira er monno e te fa grande!
Lazio celeste e bianca, na nuvola nel cielo pija na forma dell'Aquila gigante...
er Tevere me scorre nelle vene nun po esse che con un "la" c'hanno rovinato una citta' che dai tempi de Nerone gia' giocavano a Pallone come non avere appunti, solo per te Caput Mundi...
English Lyrics
I've woken up early this morning Lazio plays at home,the frost is still there,
The fact is that on saturday I can hardly sleep I keep turning over in the bed...
then, they say I'll play A walk in the city centre,
a cornetto and a cappuccino the newspaper booth in front of me,
I won't spend any money in there; and it's time to go to the pitch,
I live near it I was born in Rome,
I go there by motorcycle City of Rome,
I love you, the Tevere runs through my veins it can't be that with a "la" they have ruined a city,
that they already played football since the time of Nero like not having any notes, only for you the Capital of the World. And then all this people, surrounded by a lot of friends on the pitch an army that smashes the enemies,
and I go back to the city centre with my flag waving in the wind with the fire that I have inside,
I don’t feel the cold outside.
I arrive here at San Pietro,
'cause the Pope loves us, he blesses us, it's a joy and not a torment then I return home,
I'm hungry and happy,
I look at you, you're more pretty...
you know we won!
City of Rome,
I love you,
the Tevere runs through my veins it can't be that with a "la" they have ruined a city,
don't worry,
Lazio is here to go around the world and to make you great!
Lazio skyblue and wite,
a cloud in the sky turns into the shape of a gigantic Eagle,
the Tevere runs through my veins it can't be that with a "la" they have ruined a city,
that they already played football since the time of Nero, like not having any notes, only for you the Capital of the World.
