Bono's Italian in the introduction to the performance at the San Remo Festival in 2000 is reported to be translated as:
Thank you very much to the Pope. Mr. D'Alema (Prime Minister of Italy), thank you very much for your promise. Mr. Berlusconi, please help Mr. D'Alema to help Jubilee 2000. This is not politics but is the people's life. For the Italian people, we sing a song, "All I Want Is You."
