Rosemary Clooney Lyrics

Mambo Italiano 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 (sigialiano) [siciliano]
All you (calabraise-a) [calabrese] do the mambo like a crazy with a

Hey mambo, don't wanna tarantella
Hey mambo, no more the mozzarella
Hey mambo! Mambo italiano!
Try an enchilada with da fish (a bac a lan) [baccalà] and
Hey (goombah) [cumpà], I love a how you dance a rumba
But take 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 (Giovanno) [Giovanni?]
Hello (kess-a-deetch-a) [che si dice] you getta happy in the feets
When you mambo italiano

Shake Baby shake cause I love a when you take me
Mama say "stop or I'm gonna tell (papa) [papà]"

And a hey jadrool you don't a have to go to school
Just make a-wid da beat bambino
It's a like vino
Kid you good a lookin' but you don't know what's cookin' till you

Hey mambo, Mambo italiano
Hey mambo, Mambo italiano
Ho, ho, ho, you mixed up (Sigiliano) [siciliano]
