Lyrics

È uno stripper, sì
Questo amore è uno strip club, ah
Il mio cuore in un freezer, freezer
Sono a letto col killer, thriller
Like a virgin, virgin
Non è un film, London Calling, corri
Ah, I love Britney
È il diavolo in una Birkin (Ah-ah)

Ma che stupida voglia che ho
Quella stupida voglia
Metto la gonna più corta che ho
E vado fuori, ah
E vado fuori di me

I don’t know (Ehi)
All I need is love (Ehi-ehi)
All I need is love (Ehi)
All I need is love, all I need is love
Ma che stupida voglia che ho
Ma guarda che donna che sono
Nessuno mi può giudicare
Ti fidi di me? Che stupido uomo

Cowboy
Il mio cuore è il suo sex toy
Il mio bad boy
Madonna su Playboy
È una Barbie
Ha seicento cavalli (Ah-ah)
Io il suo beagle
È il mio Personal Jesus

I don’t know (Ehi)
All I need is love (Ehi-ehi)
All I need is lovе (Ehi)
All I need is love, all I need is love
Ma che stupida voglia chе ho
Ma guarda che donna che sono
Nessuno mi può giudicare
Ti fidi di me? Che stupido uomo

Ma che stupida voglia
Ma che stupida voglia
Metto la gonna più corta che ho
E vado fuori, ah
E vado fuori di me

Ma che stupida voglia che ho
(All I need is love)
Madonna, che donna che sono
(All I need is love)
Nessuno mi può giudicare
(All I need is love)
Ti fidi di me? (All I need is love)
Che stupido uomo
I don’t know

San Marino in Eurovision

San Marino is one of the smallest countries in the world, surrounded by Italy, and is said to be the world’s oldest surviving republic.

The 2008 Contest in Belgrade would stage San Marino’s debut entry; alt-rock group Miodio, composed of Sammarinese and Italian band members. Their song, Complice, may have finished last in its Semi-Final but not before picking up two points from fellow aspirational minnows Andorra.

Since their debut, the ‘Most Serene Republic’ has qualified for the Grand Final on three occasions: Valentina Monetta (in 2014 with the Ralph Siegel produced track Maybe), Serhat (in 2019 with Say Na Na Na) and Senhit (in 2021 with the track Adrenalina).
