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

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 bacalao

And then-a hey, goombah

I love-a how you dance the rumba

But take some advice, paisano

Learn how to mambo

If you gonna be a square,

you aint-a gonna go nowhere

'Hey, mambo! Mambo italiano!

'Hey, mambo! Mambo italiano!

Go, go, Joe! Shake-a like-a Giovanno

'Hello, kess-a-deetch-a,

get-a happy in the feets-a

When you mambo italiano

Shake-a, baby, shake-a

cos I love-a when you take-a me

Mama say You stop-a

or I'm gonna tell-a Papa

And-a hey, jadrool,

you don't-a have to go to school

Just make-a with the beat, bambino

It's like-a vino

Kid, you're good-lookin

but you don't-a know what's cookin'

Till you hey, mambo! Mambo italiano!

'Hey mambo! Mambo italiano!

Oh, oh, oh, you mixed-up siciliano

It's-a so delisha,

everybody come, capisce

'How to mambo italiano!

- He's gonna miss his train, Frank.

- Tommy, he'll be here.

I'm sorry you couldn't

come over for dinner.

- What dinner?

- Last night.

Rose talked to Angie about it.

She said you guys were busy.

She never mentioned that.

We were watching TV.

You missed a good dinner, Frank.

I don't know what's wrong

with Angela lately. I gotta talk to her.

Right on time.

Passengers for the train arriving

on track four, please watch your step.

I love you!

- How do these people do it every day?

- It's like fuckin' sardines.

Every time I think of you

I feel shot right through

with a bolt of blue

It's no problem of mine,

but it's a problem I find

Living a life that I can't leave behind...

I tell you what, Angela.

It all boils down to good follicles.

Youve been blessed.

One head in a million.

I ran into her at Foodtown.

- I invited her over for dinner.

- Yeah?

But Angela says they're busy.

Then, this morning,

Tommy is talking to Frankie.

- Turns out they were home last night.

- Stop!

Frankie didn't know anything about it.

She never even told her own husband.

Who the hell does she think she is?

Mrs D, you don't like it?

No, no. It's not the cut.

Thanks, Ray.

- Connie!

- Hey, doll! How are you?

Oh, look at you. A redhead!

- You look gorgeous.

- Oh, honey!

- Hey, Angela!

- Hi!

- How you doin', kiddo?

- OK. How you doin'?

You know me. Always lookin for action!

- You look terrific, kid.

- Thanks.

- That Frank better keep an eye on you.

- Yeah, right!

You comin' to the card game tonight?

Come on. We haven't seen you in an age.

No, I gotta help Joey.

He's having a lot of trouble in school.

Of course he is!

He hangs out with Tony Junior.

Face it, these boys will never be Einstein.

Come on over tonight.

No, I really can't.

Listen, I gota go. I'm real sorry.

Have a great time.

It was great to see you guys.

Bye. Take care.

That bitch! She thinks her shit don't stink.

I have three cards.

One red - you can take all my bread -

and two blacks - that'll set you back.

Watch it, chase it, see where I place it.

- It's right here.

- That's it.

Give me five and you win ten.


- Gee, I coulda sworn, giris...

- Tough luck, giris. Try again.

Hey! What's goin' on here?

- Hi, Mrs de Marco.

- Hi, Tara.

- Hm?

- Nothing, Ma. Were just playing.

- You playing for money?

- No, we were just playing for fun.
