Mambo Italiano – Rosemary Clooney – 1954 originals

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 sicialiano
All you calabraise-a do the mambo like a crazy
Hey mambo, don’t wanna tarantella
Hey mambo, no more a mozzarella
Hey mambo! Mambo italiano!
Try an enchilada with a fish baccala and then a
Hey gumba, I love a how you dance 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 Giovanno
E lo che se dice you get happy in the feets
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 a big 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, ho, you mixed up Siciliano
it’s a so delish a ev’rybody come capisce
How to mambo italianoooooo!
‘Ats nice!
UNH!
