Mambo Italiano Lyrics

Artist: Rosemary Clooney

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 wanna 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 italiano!
Go, go, Joe, shake like a Giovanno
Hello kess-a-deetch-a 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
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 italiano
Hey mambo, Mambo italiano
Ho, ho, ho, you mixed up Siciliano
it's a so delish a ev'rybody come copisha
How to mambo italianoooooo!

i loveeeeeeeeeeeeeee this song soo much
by madefazio on 9/28/2008 10:39pm
copisha means "copice?" or "you understand?"
What a great lyric! And sung so perfectly by an irish-american! I"m Italian, Irish and German, but when I hear Rosie sing this I'm 100% Italiano!
by Oreste on 10/1/2008 9:29pm
it is not 'copisha' or 'copice'; 'do you understand' is "capisci?"
why do people pretend to know a language, instead of learning a few words properly?
by Goomba on 10/4/2008 6:40am
You guys are all retarded.

Forget the nationalities for the moment, just enjoy the music, one of the wonderful piece I've ever listened.
by Lydia on 3/18/2009 8:07pm
Sorry, but Sicily is part of Italy. Autonomy isn't independence. Comment the song, not your personal life. I'm black so my family went through worse.

Great song, awesome music. <3
by Mazza on 3/20/2009 1:43am

jadrool also means bum. it can be used as an insult or playfully.
by JS on 12/2/2009 11:09pm

by Autumn on 11/27/2010 6:40pm
copisha means "do you understand"
by JennB on 12/2/2010 11:03pm
I believe that "copice" means "do you understand or do you "get it" " I am guessing that can be compared the question form on English's "Okay" As in...I am going to go leave now, okay?
by JennB on 12/2/2010 11:07pm
I believe the song was so called "controversial" or "racy" is because it could be construed as a little racist. Though it is all tongue-in-cheek and in good nature. I love it!! Rosie can sing it and was originally from my town (Cincinnati!) but no one sings the song like 'ole Dino

Whenever my family throws a party, there is always a band playing this song, like at my relatives 25th anniversary party. :D
by Gell-Italiana on 5/9/2012 11:12pm
some of these lyrics are beyond wrong. "bac a lab" really? How about bacala. A very popular italian fish. There are soooo many things its not even funny.
by livelovelaugh13 on 6/25/2012 5:51pm
i love love love this song and rosemary clooney!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:)
by IanS on 9/5/2013 4:29pm
Forget all this nonsense. This song has it all!!
by bella on 1/9/2014 5:20pm
It is not bac a LAB!!!!!! It's BaccaLA!!! It's a fish.
by D&G fan on 2/17/2014 3:34pm
Heard this song in one of D&G's fashion show, I instantly became addicted.
by Lil Fazio on 10/22/2015 6:45pm
To my Italian familia, Grazie Grazie. Growing up with my Italian family was the best, family first always. Party time at Fazios meant, " baby let the good time roll', I miss those times very much. But when I hear " Mambo Italiano" those where the days, great food, great family. Grazie, Nonna and nonno, of course mi mama and papa, so everybody lets mambo Italiano and have a great time... Ciao
by Jason on 7/12/2019 9:18pm
This may be the worst song of all time. Goofy instrumental and absolutely vomit inducing vocals
by Brandan on 7/11/2021 9:57pm
Love the song, though I prefer Dean's cover.
