Occidentali's Karma (English: Westerner's Karma) was the Italian entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 2017, sung by Francesco Gabbani. After winning the Sanremo Music Festival, it underwent a few changes, including the song being shortened and the word "Chanel" being removed since Contest rules state that entries cannot feature product placement.

As the country is a member of the "Big Five" it automatically qualified for the final. It was a huge favorite with the bookies' and the fans, being strongly tipped to win up to the semi finals. However, it finished in 6th place with 334 points.

LyricsEdit

Essere o dover essere – il dubbio amletico

Contemporaneo come l’uomo del neolitico
L’intelligenza è démodé
Risposte facili, dilemmi inutili
Ah-ah-ah… cercasi (Cerca, sì)
Storie dal gran finale
Sperasi (Spera, sì)
Comunque vada, panta rei
And singing in the rain

Lezioni di Nirvana, c’è il Buddha in fila indiana
Per tutti un’ora d’aria, di gloria
La folla grida un mantra, l’evoluzione inciampa
La scimmia nuda balla

Occidentali’s Karma
Occidentali’s Karma
La scimmia nuda balla
Occidentali’s Karma

Ah-ah-ah… cercasi (Cerca sì)
Umanità virtuale
Sex appeal (Sex appeal)
Comunque vada, panta rei
And singing in the rain

Lezioni di Nirvana, c’è il Buddha in fila indiana
Per tutti un’ora d’aria, di gloria
La folla grida un mantra, l’evoluzione inciampa
La scimmia nuda balla

Occidentali’s Karma
Occidentali’s Karma
La scimmia nuda balla
Occidentali’s Karma

Quando la vita si distrae cadono gli uomini
Occidentali’s Karma, mmm…
Occidentali’s Karma, ah…
La scimmia si rialza
Namasté Alé

Lezioni di Nirvana, c’è il Buddha in fila indiana
Per tutti un’ora d’aria, di gloria
La folla grida un mantra, l’evoluzione inciampa
La scimmia nuda balla

Occidentali’s Karma
Occidentali’s Karma
La scimmia nuda balla
Occidentali’s Karma

Om…

To be or having to be – a Hamletic doubt
As contemporary as the Neolithic man
Intelligence is out of fashion
Easy answers, pointless dilemmas
Ah-ah-ah… seeking (Seek, yes)
A story with a great ending
Hoping (Hope, yes)
Whatever happens, panta rhei1
And singing in the rain

Lessons in Nirvana, there’s Buddha in single file
It’s a time of fun, of glory for everyone
The crowd shouts out a mantra, evolution stumbles
The naked ape is dancing

Westerners’ karma
Westerners’ karma
The naked ape is dancing
Westerners’ karma

Ah-ah-ah… seeking (Seek, yes)
Virtual humanity
Sex appeal (Sex appeal)
Whatever happens, panta rhei
And singing in the rain

Lessons in Nirvana, there’s Buddha in single file
It’s a time of fun, of glory for everyone
The crowd shouts out a mantra, evolution stumbles
The naked ape is dancing

Westerners’ karma
Westerners’ karma
The naked ape is dancing
Westerners’ karma

When life becomes distracted men fall down
Westerners’ karma, mmm…
Westerners’ karma, ah…
The naked ape is dancing
Namaste Alé

Lessons in Nirvana, there’s Buddha in single file
It’s a time of fun, of glory for everyone
The crowd shouts out a mantra, evolution stumbles
The naked ape is dancing

Westerners’ karma
Westerners’ karma
The naked ape is dancing
Westerners’ karma

Om…
