  • I fell in love with a lady from Verona
    She's just as sweet as she can be
    All of her life she's been a loner
    Because she likes to stay so free

    Out of all of the things they make in Italy
    The clothes the cars the wine the food
    I love my lady from Verona
    Because she made me feel so good

    But it wasn't meant to be;
    I had to find out the hard way
    You know what she gave to me
    I'll treasure until my dying day
    And I would not have it any other way

    I fell in love with a lady from Verona
    She's just as sweet as she can be
    All of her life she's been a loner
    Because she likes to stay so free
