Irving Berlin - When You Kiss An Italian Girl lyrics

[1st verse:]
I no rave about Italy
I no talk about my country
Any place is the same to me
Just so long I got enough to eat
But I'd like-a to tell you dis
I'm-a kiss-a da plenty miss
But of all-a da sweet-a kiss
There's-a one got the world-a beat

[1st refrain:]
When you kiss an Italian gal, boss
Oh! you feel-a
Well, I don't know how to tell-a
But you get so excite
You go home that night
And put your left-a shoe upon the foot what is right
Let an Italian gal, boss
Kiss-a you upon the cheek
And you won't wash your face for a long-a time
'Cause it feel-a so swell
When you kiss an Italian gal

[2nd verse:]
My sweetheart-a look like a freak
Got a face-a just like next week
But the minute I kiss the cheek
Right away she look like Anna Hel'
Married men, if you got da strife
You can lead-a da happy life
Ev'ry time that you kiss your wife
Think of an Italian-a gal

[2nd refrain:]
When you kiss an Italian gal, boss
Oh! you feel-a
Well, I don't know how to tell-a
But before much-a long
You feel-a so strong
You go and choke da monk until he sing-a da song
Let an Italian gal, boss
Kiss-a you upon the cheek
And you won't wash your face for a long-a time
'Cause it feel-a so swell
When you kiss an Italian gal
