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, paesano
Learn-a 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 Giovanno
Hello, che si dice, 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 jadrool you don't-a have to go to school
Just make-a with the 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 (uh)
