  Fri. 12/25/09 2:32pm Lou Monte:

Ogni sera quell esce quannu a casa e` scura
Indu u mienzu ra cucina abballa sulu sulu
ma pare nu malandrino pura a gata ‘ssa paura

Peppino u suricillo ma fattu scubari`,
Mannaggia u suricillo a ca` si ‘nna dda` i
Stasira inda cucina nu pocu e vino aggia` lassa`
E quannu si mbriaga a Peppino aggia` ngappa`

Ma tu chi si …Siciliano?

Ma come finiu? … a schifio?!!

Chello nun gi piace u formaggio American
Chello va truvannu nu poco e parmungianu
Se fattu chiatto chiatto cu sta vita buona
E quannu chill cammina pare proprio nu galanduomu

Mannaggia u suricillo a ca` si ‘nna dda` i
Stasira inda cucina nu pocu e vino aggia` lassa`
E quannu si mbriaga a Peppino aggia` ngappa`

Oooo mannaggia u suricillo mma scasciato a mano

O sole mio...

Eh malandrino!

  Fri. 12/25/09 2:38pm Peppino:

Ladies and Gentlemen my name is Peppino the Little Mouse.

And what an eggplant!

Peppino o you little mouse o won't you go away,
Find yourself another house to run around and play
You scare my girl you eat my cheese you even drink my wine,
I try so hard to catch you but you trick me all the time.

There is a small mouse in the cellar behind the wall
Every evening he comes out when the house is dark
In the middle of the kitchen dances all alone
Looks like a bad boy even the cat gets scared

Peppino the little mouse embarrassed me
Darn the little mouse from here he has to go
Tonight in the kitchen I'm going to leave a little wine
And when he gets drunk Peppino I gotta catch

But are you …Sicilian?

No! I'm Calabrese you nut!

The other night I called my girl I asked her could we meet,
I said lets go to my house we could have a bite to eat,
And as we walked in through the door she screamed at what she saw,
There was little Peppino doing the cha cha on the floor.


Peppino u suricillo ma fattu scumbari`,
Mannaggia u suricillo a ca` si ‘nna dda` i
Stasira ind a cucina nu pocu e vino aggia` lassa`
E quannu si mbriaga a Peppino aggia` ngappa`

How did it end? … It didn’t work out???

If I ever catch you I'ma gonna throw you right in a wash tub
He doesn't like the American Cheese
He goes lookin for a bit of parmesan
He's gotten chubby chubby with the good life
And when he walks, looks like a proper gentleman

Eurizi I gatta present for you

Ah your a nice mouse

Close your eyes ...now put your hands in the box.

Oooo darn the little mouse has smashed my hand
A mouse trap

Eh bad boy!
  Fri. 12/25/09 2:42pm Hugh:

RIP Dave van Ronk!
  Fri. 12/25/09 2:53pm Ronzoni Sonobuoni:
