"Arrivederci Roma" (Goodbye, Rome) is the title and refrain of a popular Italian song, composed by Renato Rascel, with lyrics by Pietro Garinei and Sandro Giovannini. It was published in 1955 as part of the soundtrack of the Italo-American musical film with the same title.
The original lyrics express the nostalgia of a Roman man for the dinners and short-lived love affairs he had with foreign tourists who came to Rome. It recalls the popular legend associated with the Trevi Fountain:

T'invidio turista che arrivi,
t'imbevi de fori e de scavi
poi tutto d'un colpo te trovi
fontana de Trevi ch'è tutta pe' te!
Ce sta 'na leggenda romana
legata a 'sta vecchia fontana
per cui se ce butti un soldino
costringi er destino a fatte tornà

Arrivederci Roma, Goodbye, Au Revoir...
Mentre l'inglesina s'allontana
un ragazzinetto s'avvicina
va nella fontana, pesca un soldo, se ne va!
Arrivederci Roma!
