Alma Cogan – 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 Siciliano
All you Calabrese-a, 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-bacala. And then-a

Hey goombah, I love-a how you dance the rumba
But take-a some advice Paisano
Learn how to mambo
If you gonna be a square you ain't-a gonna go nowhere-a

Hey mambo, mambo Italiano
Hey mambo, mambo Italiano
Go, go, Joe, shake like a Gioviano

Hello kess-a deech-a you get happy in the feets-a when you
Mambo Italiano
(Orchestral Break)
Shake-a baby, shake-a, 'cause I love-a when you take-a me

(Orchestral Break)
Mama say, "You stop-a or I'm gonna tell your papa." And then

Hey jadrool, you don't-a have to go to school
Just make-a wit' 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, ho, you mixed up Siciliano
It's-a so delish'-a ev'rybody can capice-a how to
Mambo Italiano
'ats nice!
(Uhh!)
