Sanremo 2018 – Sting e Shaggy cantano Don’t make me wait

di Laura Boni

Sting e Shaggy ed i loro ritmi caraibici sono stati i primi ospiti internazionale di Sanremo 2018. I due artisti hanno intonato Don’t make me wait, brano che anticipa il disco scritto a quattro mani nel quale hanno cercato di ricreare musica, spirito, vitalità e cultura tipiche di questa isola dei Caraibi, sapientemente mixati con sonorità pop ed energia rock.

Prima della performance con Shaggy, Sting aveva cantato Muoio per te, le cui parole furono scritte per lui da Zucchero. La canzone è la versione italiana di Mad about you; questa versione è stata inserita come traccia bonus nelle edizioni italiane dell’album The Soul Cages e della raccolta Fields of Gold: The Best of Sting 1984-1994.

Testo di Don’t make me wait di Shaggy e Sting:

Don’t ya make me wait
(Don’t make me wait in vain) to love you
(Can’t wait to give you me last name)
Don’t make me wait, (don’t make me too long girl)

Don’t make me wait, don’t make me wait
To love, to love, to love you
Don’t make me wait, don’t make me wait
To love, to love, to love you (A wah mi say!)

It didn’t take me long to fall in love with your mind
And I won’t even mention the way you body perfectly design
So fine
And judging from your outlook on life
I knew this would be more than just one night
But now I’m ready for the next level and you’re telling me you need more time
No crime

Nothing wrong with waiting a little bit
Yuh know this is more to me than just hittin’ it
But you only get a love like this once in a lifetime
And if this is our chance I ain’t missing it

My whole life I never felt like this
Just wanna run away, then I don’t wanna fight this
I ain’t rushing yuh to make up yo mind,
Just wanna put some more quality in every time
Come on girl!

Don’t make me wait, don’t make me wait
To love, to love, to love you (I can’t wait more to love you)
Don’t make me wait, don’t make me wait
To love, to love, to love you

I don’t want you to think I’m rushing you
I know you like to take your time (time, time)
I’m already sold by the idea, of you and I
Just tell me where I need to sign

‘Cause I’ve been searching for a while girl
And I know what works for me (ohh, ohh)
All I need to know if this is what you want girl,
‘Cause I’m already where I need to be
So don’t make me wait

Don’t make me wait, don’t make me wait
To love, to love, to love you (I can’t wait no longer)
Don’t make me wait, don’t make me wait
To love, to love, to love you (say what)

You don’t wanna rush and I don’t wanna take my time
I’m putting everything on the line
They say that true love’s hard to find,
I am ready now to make you mine

Don’t make me wait
Baby now, baby now, don’t make me wait
You gotta say yeah, yeah
Don’t make me wait
Baby now, baby now, don’t make me wait
Don’t make me wait!
