You Wanna Be Americano (singable)

Versions: #1#2#3#4#5
[Verse 1]
You're wearing trousers with the label showing
You wear a fancy hat thinking it's cool
You strut around wherever you are going
Though you should know that you look like a fool
 
[Chorus]
You wanna be Americano,
'mmericano, 'mmericano
Tell me why you're such a fake
You must think you're alla moda,
But when you drink Whiskey and Soda
All you get's a stomachache
 
You dance the Rock & Roll
You play the baseball
Those cigarettes you smoke
Should make you choke
'Cause they leave your mama broke
 
You wanna be Americano,
'mmericano, 'mmericano
You were born in Italy
An American you'll never be
OK, Napulità?
Tu vuò fà l'americà
Tu vuò fà l'americà
 
[Verse 2]
You're putting English in Italiano
Though when you do that, confusion ensues
How can she understand you mean "Ti amo"
When you caress and tell her "I love you"?
 
[Repeat Chorus]
 
[Instrumental Break]
 
[Ending]
You wanna be Americano,
'mmericano, 'mmericano
You were born in Italy
An American you'll never be
OK, Napulità?
Tu vuò fà l'americà
Tu vuò fà l'americà
 
Whisky e soda e rock 'n' roll
Whisky e soda e rock 'n' roll
Whisky e soda e rock 'n' roll!

This singable translation was done by me, according to the original lyrics with the chorus based on the Sophia Loren version.

Neapolitan

Tu Vuo Fa L'Americano
