Zar ne znate, kakav glas imate?
Imate zlato u grlu! Vidjet ćete, nećete postati barito, nego tenor s baritonskim, zlatnim timbrom!

Happy 130th birthday, to our great tenor Tino Pattiera!
Don't you know what voice do you have?

You have gold in your throat boy! You will see, you will not become a baritone but a tenor with a baritone, golden timbre!
