"That's Amore" as written by Jack Brooks and Harry Warren....
(In Napoli where love is king
When boy meets girl here's what they say)

When a moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie
That's amore
When the world seems to shine like you've had too much wine
That's amore
Bells will ring ting-a-ling-a-ling, ting-a-ling-a-ling
And you'll sing "Vita bella"
Hearts will play tippy-tippy-tay, tippy-tippy-tay
Like a gay tarantella

When the stars make you drool just like a pasta fazool
That's amore
When you dance down the street with a cloud at your feet
You're in love
When you walk in a dream but you know you're not dreaming signore
Scuzza me, but you see, back in old Napoli
That's amore

(When a moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie
That's amore
When the world seems to shine like you've had too much wine
That's amore
Bells will ring ting-a-ling-a-ling, ting-a-ling-a-ling
And you'll sing "Vita bella"
Hearts will play tippy-tippy-tay, tippy-tippy-tay
Like a gay tarantella, lucky fella

When the stars make you drool just like a pasta fazool)
That's amore
(When you dance down the street with a cloud at your feet
You're in love
When you walk in a dream but you know you're not dreaming signore
Scuzza me, but you see, back in old Napoli)
That's amore
Amore, that's amore

    General CommentStone Cold Steve Austin from WWE back on December 13th 2001 sings the first verse well he dosen't actually sing it he says it to Booker T in a Supermarket just before hitting him in the head with a frozen pizza It is really funny Type in Youtube Stone Cold vs Booker T in a Supermarket the whole video is funny And he also uses a sausage as a microphone

    General CommentGreat song, it is certainly one that we sing at work to keep everyone happy and perky. Dean Martin is the king of crooners and this song sums up the great Italian/ American heritage he has and the joy he got from singing songs.

    General CommentI wonder what this song is about!
    (sarcasm.)

    Classic song. I'm surprised not that many people have commented on it. Hmm.

    General CommentYOU SPELLED "VITA" WRONG.

    it's not "veeta."
    thats not even an italian word.

    "vita bella" means beautiful life.

    General CommentMy friend has karaoke Revolution, and we always play it when she has parties. This is one of the songs on the game. Normally everyone sings their song along, but whenever anyone picks this song everyone at the party always has to sing along, which is hilarous since sometimes they're drunk.

    My InterpretationIt's obviously about love, but to dissect some of the more metaphorical meanings:

    When the moon hits your eye (blinding you) - that's love, because love is blind.

    When the world seems to shine like you've had too much wine - that's love, because love is intoxicating and best done drunk.

    When the stars make you drool just like a pasta fazool - that's love, because you're looking upwards and drooling like a retard and love is foolish.
