Mambo Italiano by Bette Midler

A boy went back to Napoli
Because he missed the scenery
The native dancers and the charming songs
But wait a minute, something's wrong

Hey! Hey!
Now it's hey Mambo, Mambo Italiano!
Hey Mambo, Mambo Italiano!
Go, go, Joe, you mixed up Sigiliano
All you Calabrese do the mambo like crazy

And hey Mambo! Don't wanna tarantella
Hey Mambo! No more-a moozzarella
Hey Mambo! Hey Mambo Italiano
Try an enchilada with a fish-a-barcalada

Hey goombah!
I love-a how you dance rumba
But take-a some advice paisano
Learn how to mambo
If you're gonna be a square
You're never gonna go nowhere

Hey Mambo, Mambo Italiano!
Hey Mambo, hey Mambo Italiano!
Go, go, Joe, shake-a like a Gioviano
Hello quesadicha
You getta happy in the feets-a
When you Mambo Italiano!

Shake-a baby, shake-a
'cause I love-a when you take-a me

Hey Jagool!
You don't-a have to go to school
Just make a little beef flambino
It's-a like-a vino
Kid you're good-lookin'
But you don't know what's-a cookin' till you
Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey! Hey!

Shake-a baby, shake-a
'cause I love it when you take-a me
By the pizzeria down-a where I'm gonna be-a
Don't ya tell your mama
Mama's gonna tell-a papa
There's-a nothin' to it
Come on baby let's-a do it!

Hey Mambo, Mambo Italiano!
Hey Mambo, Mambo Italiano!
Go, go, Joe, you mixed up Sigiliano
It's-a so delish-a, everybody gonna preshi-ada
Mambo Italiano!

Do the mambo!
