Italiano Sing-Along! (Luna Mezzo Mare)

Wednesday, June 1st, 2011

Italian or not, you just have to shake your ASSets when you hear this vintage number by Lou Monte.

As a my Uncle Angelo once said while slurping down his minestrone to the song, “thissa songa will make-a dying-a man getta outta his bed and dance-a the Italiano jig!” I agree with Uncle Angelo, so sing along, enjoy, and be sure to SHAKE what God gave you!

“Luna Mezzo Mare” or “Lazy Mary” by Lou Monte

C’ ‘na luna mezz’u mare
Mamma mia m’a maritare
Figlia mia a cu te dare
Mamma mia pensace tu
Se te piglio lu pesciaiole
Isse vai isse vene
Sempe lu pesce mane tene
Se ce ‘ncappa la fantasia
Te pesculia figghiuzza mia
LĂ  lariulĂ  pesce fritt’e baccalĂ 
Uei cumpĂ  no calamare c’eggi’accattĂ 

C’ ‘na luna mezz’u mare
Mamma mia m’a maritare
Figlia mia a cu te dare
Mamma mia pensace tu
Se te piglio lu pulezia
Isse vai isse vene
Semp’a scuppetta mane tene
Se ce ‘ncappa la fantasia
Te scuppettea figghiuzza mia
LĂ  lariulĂ  pesce fritt’e baccalĂ 
Uei cumpĂ  ‘na scuppetta c’eggi’accattĂ 

Lazy Mary you better get up
She answered back I am not able
Lazy Mary you better get up
We need the sheets for the table
Lazy Mary you smoke in bed
There’s only one man you should marry
My advice to you would be
Is to pay attention to me
You’d better marry a fireman
He’ll come and go, go and come

Sempe la pompa mane tene
Se ce ‘ncappa la fantasia
Te pomperia figghiuzza mia
LĂ  lariulĂ  pesce fritt’e baccalĂ 
Uei cumpĂ  ‘na pompina c’eggi’accattĂ 
0 cummĂ  ca m’ voglio maritĂ 
Trovame ‘na uagliotta
Ca me voglio maritĂ 
Trovame ‘na uagliotta
Ca me voglio maritĂ 
Trovame ‘na uagliotta
Ca me voglio maritĂ 
Hey!
