mambo italiano lyrics – gérard darmon

a boy went back to napoli because he missed the scenery
the native dances and the charming songs
but wait a minute something’s wrong, ’cause now it’s…

hey mambo, mambo italiano, hey hey mambo mambo italiano
go go go you mixed up siciliano
all you calabrese do the mambo like-a crazy with the
hey mabo don’t wanna tarantella, hey mambo no more mozzarella
hey mambo mambo italiano, try an enchilada with a fish baccala

hey goomba i love how you dance the rumba
but take some advice paisano learn-a how to mambo
if you’re gonna be a square you ain’t-a gonna go anywhere

hey mambo mambo italiano hey hey mambo mambo italiano
go go joe shake like a tiavanna
e lo che se dice you get happy in the pizza when you mambo italiano

(piano solo)

hey chadrool you don’t-a have to go to school
just make it with a big bambino, it’s like vino
kid you good-a looking but you don’t-a know what’s cooking ’til you
hey mambo mambo italiano, hey hey mambo mambo italiano
ho ho ho you mixed up siciliano
e lo che se dice you get happy in the pizza when you mambo italiano

(accordéon solo)

hey chadrool you don’t-a have to go to school
just make it with a big bambino, it’s like vino
kid you good-a looking but you don’t-a know what’s cooking ’til you
hey mambo mambo italiano, hey hey mambo mambo italiano
ho ho ho you mixed up siciliano
e lo che se dice you get happy in the pizza when you mambo italiano.
