Puorte 'e cazune cu nu stemma arreto...
na cuppulella cu 'a visiera aizata...
passa scampanianno pe' Tuleto
comm'a nuguappo, pe' se fa' guarda'...

Tu vuo' fa' ll'americano
mericano, mericano...
sient'a mme chi t' 'o ffa fa'?
tu vuoi vivere alla moda,
ma se bevi "whisky and soda"
po' te siente 'e disturba'...
Tu abball' o' rocchenroll
tu giochi a baisiboll...
ma e solde p' e' Ccamel
chi te li da
la borsetta di mamma

Tu vuo' fa' ll'americano
mericano, mericano...
ma si' nato in Italy!
sient' a mme: nun ce sta niente 'a fa'
ok, napulitan!
tu vuo' fa' ll'american
tu vuo' fa' ll'american!

Come te po' capi' chi te vo' bbene
si tu lle parle miezo americano?
quanno se fa ll'ammore sott' 'a luna
comme te vene 'ncapa 'e di' "I love you"?

Tu vuo' fa' ll'americano
mericano, mericano...
sient'a mme chi t' 'o ffa fa'?
tu vuoi vivere alla moda,
ma se bevi "whisky and soda"
po' te siente 'e disturba'...
Tu abball' o' rocchenroll
tu giochi a baisiboll...
ma e solde p' e' Ccamel
chi te li da
la borsetta di mamma

Tu vuo' fa' ll'americano
mericano, mericano...
ma si' nato in Italy!
sient' a mme: nun ce sta niente 'a fa'
ok, napulitan!
tu vuo' fa' ll'america
tu vuo' fa' ll'america
tu vuo' fa' ll'america!

    This song is perfect. made me think about my Calabrese grandmother and myself living in America. They may be happy because of this as they never liked the Argentina story much and now we all know they were right about the South American Fraud life style. In 1910, they already knew what piece of shit South America and Cuba are about.
