"Paninaro" as written by Neil Tennant and Christopher Lowe....
Passion and love, sex, money,
Violence, religion, injustice, death

Paninaro, Paninaro, oh oh oh

Girls, boys, arts, pleasure
Girls, boys, arts, pleasure

Paninaro, Paninaro, oh oh oh

Food, cars, travel, food, cars, travel, travel
(Travel travel)
New York, New York, New York,
New York

Paninaro, Paninaro, oh oh oh

Armani, Armani, A-A-Armani, Versace, Cinque

Paninaro, Paninaro, oh oh oh
Paninaro, Paninaro, oh oh oh

Armani, Armani, A-A-Armani, Versace, Cinque

Paninaro (ro ro), Paninaro, oh oh oh (oh)
Paninaro (ro ro), Paninaro, oh oh oh (oh)

(I don't like Country & Western.
I don't like rock music.
Ehm, I don't like, I don't like Rockabilly.
Rock'n'roll in particular
I don't like much, really, do I?
But what I do like, I love passionately)

Paninaro, Paninaro, oh oh oh
Paninaro, Paninaro, oh oh oh

Paninaro, Paninaro, oh oh oh
Paninaro, Paninaro, oh oh oh

You! You're my lover,
You're my hope, you're my dreams, my life
My passion, my love, my sex, my money,
Violence, religion, injustice and death

Paninaro, Paninaro, oh oh oh
Paninaro, Paninaro, oh oh oh

Paninaro, Paninaro, oh oh oh
Paninaro, Paninaro, oh oh oh

Paninaro, (I don't like much, really, do I?)
Paninaro, oh oh oh
Paninaro, Paninaro, oh oh oh
Paninaro, Paninaro, oh oh oh
Paninaro, (But what I do like, I love passionately)
Paninaro, oh oh oh
Paninaro, Paninaro, oh oh oh

Paninaro, Paninaro, oh oh oh
Paninaro, oh oh oh

    General CommentWasn't much of a comment. Any PSB fan knows Neil is gay, and he doesn't care what others think, and I admire him for that. He's got more balls than anyone I've met to just go on out like that, without a care. This song is based off of an Italian clothing style which is similar, if not exactly the same, to the name of Paninaro. I think the song is just in a way a parody-like allusion about the style.

    MemoryThe story goes that Pet Shop Boys were shopping in Milan and they bought an Avirex G1 Jacket (the same one used in Top Gun by Tom Cruise), which was one of the many brands used by Paninari.
    After that they went to a fast food in the city and when someone saw them and recognized the jacket, they yelled "Fkng Paninaro", but the Pet Shop Boys had no idea why they were yelling or what that meant, until someone explained to them what a Paninaro was and their movement.
    From there, they decided to make a song dedicated to Paninari. The video was shot in Milan, and the people used in the video are actual Italian Paninari of that time who used to hang out in San Babila Square, their meeting place.
    The song is nothing but a mix of things related to Paninari's clothing style and lingo.
