Mambo italiano
Rosemary Clooney Lyrics


A girl went back to Napoli
Because she missed the scenery
The native dances and the charming songs
But wait a minute, something's wrong

Hey, mambo, mambo italiano
Hey, mambo, mambo italiano
Go, go, go you mixed up siciliano
All you calabrese do the mambo like a crazy with a
Hey mambo, don't wanna tarantella
Hey mambo, no more a mozzarella
Hey mambo, mambo italiano

Try an enchilada with the fishy baccalà and then a
Hey cumpa', I love a how you dance a rhumba
But take a some advice, paisano
Learn how to mambo
If you gonna be a square
You ain't a gonna go nowhere

Hey mambo, mambo italiano
Hey mambo, mambo italiano
Go, go, Joe, shake like a Giovano
Hello, cosa dici, getta happy in the feets a when you
Mambo italiano

Shake-a baby, shake-a 'cause I love a when you take a me

Mama say stop-a or I'm gonna tell papa
And a hey già drool you don't a have to go to school
Just make-a wid da beat bambino
It's a like a vino
Kid, you good a lookin' but you don't a-know what's cookin' till you

Hey mambo, mambo italiano
Hey mambo, mambo italiano
Ho, ho, Joe, you mixed up siciliano
It's a so delish a everybody come, capisci
How to mambo italiano

'Ats nice! (unh)

O Z

some help for the lyric!!!

"try an enchilada with the fish baccalà" (baccalà is a fish)
"Hey Cumpà!!! (is from Compare that means fellow), I love a how you dance rumba!!!"
"Go, go, Joe, shake like Giovanni" (Giovanni means Joe in italian)
"Hello che si dice? (that means Hello what's up?) you getta happy in the feets..."
"It's so delish, everybody come capisc' (capire: understand; capisci?? means Can you understand?)

yeah! take some advice from a real Paisano!
and learn how to mambo...
peace cumpà!

She was required to sing with an accent. The closest accent she could do was Italian.

@Planet Babylon why do you have to try and start an argument over this? The internet nowadays man. Just get on with your life.

@The Color Red Not all people with the same last name are related. I'd even say MOST people with the same last are not related, specially in a widely populated country.
