"Mambo Italiano" as written by and Bob Merrill....
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 with a

Hey mambo, don't want to tarantella
Hey mambo, no more a mozzarella
Hey mambo! Mambo Italiano!
Try an enchilada with da fish a bac a lab and then a

Hey goombah, I love a how you dance a rhumbah
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 Iitaliano!
Go, go, Joe, shake like a Giovanno

Hello kess-a-deetch-a you getta happy in the feets a
When you mambo Iitaliano
Shake-a Baby shake-a cause i love a when you take a me
Mama say "stop-a or I'm gonna go to papa"

And a hey ja drool you don't a have to go to school
Just make-a wid da 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 Iitaliano
Hey mambo, Mambo Iitaliano
Ho, ho, ho, you mixed up Siciliano

It's a so delish a ev'rybody come copisha
How to mambo Iitalianoooooo!
'Ats nice!
