was the Italian entry at the Eurovision Song Contest 1974 in Brighton performed by Gigliola Cinquetti. She returned to the contest ten years after winning with Non ho l'età.

Cinquetti performed last on the night after Portugal. At the close of voting, it finished in 2nd place with 18 points, making her the second person to win one year and finish second in another after Lys Assia.

This song was banned for a month in Italy due to a divorce referendum, where by the song translating to "Yes", it was thought the song would sway the vote.

Lyrics

Camminai un po', dietro i passi suoi
E chissà perché non ridevo più
L'erba si appoggiò sul vestito mio
Era come se io dicessi addio
Non leggevo più nei pensieri miei
Ma poi si fece chiara l'atmosfera
E dovevo dirgli sì

Sì, la mia mente disse sì
Per paura o per amore
Non me lo chiesi mai
Sì, dolcemente dissi sì
Per provare un'emozione
Che non ho avuto mai
E quando nel suo viso
Tutto il cielo si scoprì
Sì, sì

Quel che accadde poi non ricordo più
Forse mi svegliai o mi addormentai
E nei sogni miei grandi praterie
E le mani tue strette nelle mie
Correvamo e poi, correvamo e poi
E poi si fece chiara l'atmosfera
E tornai a dirti sì


Sì, dolcemente dissi sì
Per provare un'emozione
Che non ho avuto mai
E quando nel suo viso
Tutto il cielo si scoprì

Sì (All'amore ho detto sì)
(E ogni notte come allora ancora ti direi sì)
Sì, sì

I walked a little, following his steps
And who knows why I wasn't laughing anymore
The grass leaned upon my dress
It was as if I was saying goodbye
I can't read my thoughts anymore
But then the atmosphere cleared up
And I had to say yes to him

Yes, my mind said yes
Out of fear or out of love
I never asked myself about it
Yes, I softly said yes
To feel an emotion
That I've never had before
And when in his face
The whole sky cleared up
Yes, yes

I can't remember anymore what happened after that
Maybe I woke up or I fell asleep
And in my dreams, there were wide prairies
And your hands were holding mine
We ran and then, we ran and then
And then the atmosphere cleared up
And I said yes to you once again
Yes

Yes, I softly said yes
To feel an emotion
That I've never had before
And when in his face
The whole sky cleared up

Yes (I said yes to love)
(And I would say yes to you every night like then)
Yes, yes
