Mondo Sinistro

Album: 24 Carrots (1980)
  • I take my troubles on a Friday night
    To the heart of the bistro
    Among the shadows and the low low lights
    I can find a release-o

    My favorite waitress will be here tonight
    I love the way she wears those fish-net tights
    She's so hard to resist-o
    in this Mondo Sinistro

    She picks a menu up and throws it my way
    With a flick of her wrist-o
    I'm sitting hoping that the night might take
    A romantic twist-o

    I order chicken and a chilled chablis
    She brings me grapefruit and a cup of tea
    She's a little Mephisto
    In this Mondo Sinistro

    I say I really love her dark brown eyes
    And the way that they tease-o
    I tell her everytime she passes by
    I grow weak in the knees-o

    I ask her would she like to come and play
    She blows my candle out and walks away
    I just cease to exist-o

  • AnonymousMondo Sinistro actually means "Sinister World."
  • Robert from Erlanger, KyI was under the misconception that 'Mondo Sinistro' meant: Sinister World.
  • Papercop from Rome, ItalyActually a literal translation from italian of "mondo sinistro" would be something like "grim world", which kind of makes more sense...
