  • 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 siciliano
    All you calabrese 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 the fishy baccalà and then a
    Hey cumpa', I love a how you dance a rhumba
    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 Giovano
