Hey, Chris! This show is called "Disco for Household Chores." Just kidding. I'll play some indie rock soon. Or something.

Do you have snow in New York? According to the television over here things are pretty bad?

I don't mind the "disco for household chores" since I'm in the middle of a sewing project.

lots of snow but not like it is outside of the city

According to Google Translate, the title means "Maybe Were Better You." You're welcome.

"Maybe Were Better Than You"? Love and loss, I presume.

Lyrics to Maybe Were Better Than You:

Di piu belle al mondo non ce n'e Of the most beautiful in the world, there is
pensavo quel famoso giorno all' altar I thought that famous day all 'altar
eri meglio forse anche piu di lei were better perhaps even more than her
piu di lei che ora amo da morir. more than she who now love to die.
Come un sogno sei stata per me ... You were like a dream for me ...
... ...
mi ricordo quando tornavo a casa I remember when I came home
stavi alla finestra ad aspettar were the window to await
invece quando ora torno da te however, when now I come to you
tu non m'aspetti piu , ea volte in casa non ci sei... you do not wait for me the most, and sometimes you're not at home ...
... ...
e se di notte tardavo forse non ricordi piu and if at night tardavo perhaps have forgotten more
sotto le coperte tu , m'aspettavi under the covers you, m'aspettavi
ed eri , con neanche la sottoveste and you were, even with the slip
bruciava la tua pelle nuda ,dalla voglia burn your bare skin, the desire
di stringermi,di stringermi. to shake, to shake.
Adesso quando vieni a letto come ti vesti Now when you go to bed as you dress
e ti spogli quando ti alzi da me and you undress when you get up from me
e per paura che di far l'amore io ti chieda and for fear of making love I ask you
ne inventi sempre una ogni sera I always invent every night
ma forse vuoi farti pregare da me... but maybe you want to pray for me ...
... ...
i tuoi baci da tempo me li hai fatti sospirar your kisses for a long time you made me sigh
forse tu l'hai fatto solo perhaps you did only
per legarmi a te to bind me to you
e invece, hai sciolto questo nodo and instead, you loose this node
che Lui dall'alto aveva fatto per noi due He had done for us from two
e non vedevi, che ero solo... and did not see, I was just ...
Ora tu piangi perche io amo un'altra Now you're crying because I love another
Signore, giacche non vuoi che lasci,la donna Lord, jackets not want me to leave, the woman
che tu hai scelto per me, e che quel giorno that you have chosen for me, and that day
portai all'altar, ti prego aiutami: cancella I took her to the altar, please help me: clear
l'altra dal mio cuor, perche la sposa che tu hai the other from my heart, because the bride that you
dato a me, e solo una sorella ormai given to me, and only a sister now
chi lo sa se tornero ad amare lei... Who knows if I'll be back to love you ...
Di piu belle al mondo non ce n'e Of the most beautiful in the world, there is
pensavo quel famoso giorno all' altar I thought that famous day all 'altar
eri meglio forse anche piu di lei were better perhaps even more than her
piu di lei che ora amo da morir. more than she who now love to die.
Come un sogno sei stata per me ... You were like a dream for me ...
... ...
mi ricordo quando tornavo a casa I remember when I came home
stavi alla finestra ad aspettar were the window to await
invece quando ora torno da te however, when now I come to you
tu non m'aspetti piu , ea volte in casa non ci sei... you do not wait for me the most, and sometimes you're not at home ...
... ...
e se di notte tardavo forse non ricordi piu and if at night tardavo perhaps have forgotten more
sotto le coperte tu , m'aspettavi under the covers you, m'aspettavi
ed eri , con neanche la sottoveste and you were, even with the slip
bruciava la tua pelle nuda ,dalla voglia burn your bare skin, the desire
di stringermi,di stringermi. to shake, to shake.
