Aaron Neville's, "Ave Maria"
The Lyrics:
Ave Maria
Vergin del ciel
Sovrana di grazie e madre pia
Accogli ognor la fervente preghiera
Non negar
A questo smarrito mio amor
Tregua nel suo dolor!
Sperduta l'alma mia ricorre a te
E piena di speme si prostra ai tuoi piè
T'invoca e attende la vera paceche solo tu puoi donar
Ave Maria!
Ave Maria, gratia plena,
Maria, gratia plena
Maria, gratia plena
Ave Ave Dominus
Dominus tecum,
Benedicta tu in mulieribus,
Et benedictuset
Benedictus fructus ventris
Ventris tui, Iesus.
Ave Maria
The music is by Franz Schubert. It is "Ellens dritter Gesang" from the song cycle "Songs from Sir Walter Scott." Schubert used a translation of Scott's "Lady of the Lake." However, the Latin text of Roman Catholic prayer "Ave Maria" is frequently substituted for the Scott text in popular performances. This version has been recorded by many singers.

Aaron Neville's, "La Vie Dansante"
The Lyrics:
La Vie Dansante
This is a remake of a Jimmy Buffet song. "La vie dansante" literally translates as "the dancing life." A more accurate translation would probably be "a carefree lifestyle."
