Billie Joe covers the Italian song ‘Amico’

Billie Joe continues to keep fans entertained during this seemingly never-ending quarantine with numerous covers released, benefit and talk show appearances and even a remix EP.

This time it’s a surprise Wednesday edition of No Fun Mondays with Billie taking on the Italian song ‘Amico’ (which translates to “friend”), originally performed by Don Backy.

This song was originally by Don Backy. It’s called “Amico” with a power pop twist. Enjoy. Ps.. Please excuse my Italian

– Billie Joe Armstong

Translated ‘Amico’ lyrics courtesy of Google Translate:

You cry and you don’t want to tell me the truth
What’s wrong,
but I know, you loved her and she went away
But I will help you (au) and cheerfully I will see you again
Friend
Sing again with me
Laugh again with me
In deep you know
That these troubles
One day you will forget them
Tonight you don’t smile, it’s not you anymore
But why, but why
It’s because someone went away
But I will help you (au) and merry I’ll see you again
Friend
Sing again with me
Laugh again with me
After all you know
that these woes
One day you will forget them
Oh, oh, bet that
I will laugh with you
