lyrics

it's a south busy Philadelphia morning

in our little fish pond

trucks are out, people smoke, coffee's brewing

All the boots on the ground

look at all the old Italians sitting

chatting their lives away

have you heard this and seen that

"how you doing, God Bless!"

Hey that's Tony, monkey's got him

he was such a good kid

he went to jail, he stabbed his mommy

now he's on parole and smokes weed

This town's a mess, can you believe it?

not what it used to be

it was all us and it was safe

and there was none of that hipster shit

there were good rules, and respect

home-made tomato sauce

did you call it gravy, don't remember Nonna

sometimes I feel so lost...

it's a south busy Philadelphia evening

in our little fish pond

trucks are back, people smoke, pasta's cooking

all the boots off the ground

look, at all the old Italians sitting

chatting their lives away

have you heard this and seen that

"how you doing, God Bless!"

Hey, isn't that Gina...poverina

her husband's such a dick

she's got four kids and a rent to pay

he left her to screw that tattooed chick

This town's a mess, can you believe it?

sure not what used to be...


duorme mio splendido Amore accussi'

radioso te risveglierai

int'a' luce d'un sole

ca splende e c'arde pecche'

ora sa' ca tu non ce stai piu'....
