Perry Como – Chi-baba, Chi-baba lyrics

Many a year ago in old sorrento
A certain ditty was quite the thing
Whenever a mother rocked her baby in sorrento
This little ditty she used to sing:

Chi-baba, chi-baba, chi-wawa
An' chi-lawa kook-a la goombah
Chi-baba, chi-baba, chi-wawa
My bambino go to sleep!

Chi-baba, chi-baba, chi-wawa
An' chi-lawa kook-a la goombah
Chi-baba, chi-baba, chi-wawa
My bambino go to sleep!

All the stars are in the skies ready to say " goodnight"
Can't you see your doll is sleepy, too?
Close your drowsy little eyes, mama will hold you tight
While she sings a lullaby to you:

Oh, chi-baba, chi-baba, chi-wawa
An' chi-lawa kook-a la goombah
Chi-baba, chi-baba, chi-wawa
My bambino go to sleep!

(chi-baba, chi-baba, chi-baba, chi-baba, chi-wawa, and chi-lawa)
Chi-baba, chi-baba, chi-wawa
An' chi-lawa kook-a la goombah (la goombah!)
Chi-baba, chi-baba, chi-wawa
My bambino go to sleep!

(chi, chi, chi-baba!)
Chi, chi, chi-baba, chi-baba, chi-wawa
An' chi-lawa kook-a la goombah (la goombah!)
Chi-baba, chi-baba, chi-wawa
My bambino go to sleep!

All the stars are in the skies ready to say " goodnight, goodnight"
Can't you see your doll is sleepy, too?
Close your drowsy little eyes, mama will hold you tight
While she sings a lullaby to you, ever so sweetly!

Chi-baba, chi-baba, chi-wawa
An' chi-lawa kook-a la goombah (la la goombah! Chi-baba!)
Chi-baba, chi-baba, chi-wawa
My bambino go to sleep!

Chi-baba, chi-baba, chi-wawa
My bambino go to sleep!
Chi-baba, chi-baba, chi-wawa
My bambino. ..
Go to sleep!
