Magpie 33

[SONG, To the tune of Louis Prima’s “Angelina.”]

“I use cologne Parmesan
So I can call upon Angelina.
Angelina – the waitress from the pizzeria.
I eat antipasto twice
Just because she is so nice, Angelina.
Angelina, the waitress from the pizzeria.
Ti voglio bene,
Angelina, I adore you.
E un passione,
Angelina, I live for you.
Now with Parma’s fine cologne
I will make her all my own,
Angelina.
I’ll be dining at the Ritz
With the waitress from the pizz –
Eria.”

CIAO!

OK ~ YOU!

I had to Google 'Angelina' and Louie Prima to remember how it went .. quite the peppy rhythm!! Nicely done as always!

"Nicely done as always!"
Thanks so much, Helen, Carrie, kathew, jabblog, senderupwords and Brigid.

Interesting point: "Angelina" era il nome della madre di Louis Prima. Capite?

Seriously, have you written song lyrics seriously? This was great, even without knowing the song. I liked it so much that I promise to find the song online and have a listen.

Berowne said...

Lydia: "I liked it so much that I promise to find the song online and have a listen."
Yes, anyone interested in Louis Prima's "Angelina" can find a number of versions of the song on YouTube.
