(In Napoli where love is king,
When boy meets girl, here's what they say)

When the moon hits you eye like a big-a pizza pie
That's amore
When the world seems to shine like you've had too much wine
That's amore

Bells will ring ting-a-ling-a-ling, ting-a-ling-a-ling
And you'll sing "Vita bella"
Hearts'll play tippi-tippi-tay, tippi-tippi-tay
Like a gay tarantella

When the stars make you drool joost-a like a pasta fazool
That's amore
When you dance down the street with a cloud at your feet, you're in love
When you walk in a dream but you know you're not Dreamin', signore
'Scusa me, but you see, back in old Napoli, that's amore

(When the moon hits you eye like a big-a pizza pie, that's amore)
That's amore
(When the world seems to shine like you've had too much wine, that's amore)
That's amore

Bells will ring
Ting-a-ling-a-ling
Ting-a-ling-a-ling
And you'll sing "Vita bella"
Vita bell-vitabella
Hearts will play
Tippi-tippi-tay, tippy-tippy-tay
Like a gay tarantella
Lucky fella

When the stars make you drool just like a pasta fazool
That's amore (that's amore)
When you dance down the street with a cloud at your feet
You're in love
When you walk in a dream but you know you're not
Dreaming signore
Scuzza me, but you see, back in old Napoli)
That's amore

When the stars make you drool just like a pasta fazool)
That's amore
(When you dance down the street with a cloud at your feet
You're in love
When you walk in a dream but you know you're not
Dreaming signore
Scuzza me, but you see, back in old Napoli)
That's amore, (amore)
That's amore

    Clearly, it's all about love. But not only love, but the feelings you get when you are in love. It's a great song for a first date. :)

    When you just know what you've seen is just like a dream, that's amore. When your heart feels so light like the stars in the night, that's amore. When you feel that it's right then hold onto it tight, that's amore! When it all makes sense even in the past tense,that's amore.
