Tu Vuo Fa L’Americano

Renato Carosone

Tu vuò fà l’americano” (“You Want to Be American“, literally “You want to act the American“) is a Neapolitan language song by Italian singer Renato Carosone.

Carosone’s original version of the song was performed by him in the film Totò, Peppino e le fanatiche (directed by Mario Mattoli, 1958). The song was featured in the 1960 Melville Shavelson film It Started in Naples, in which it was sung by Sophia Loren. It was also performed by Rosario Fiorello in the 1999 film The Talented Mr. Ripley.

The lyrics are about an Italian who affects a contemporary American lifestyle, drinking whisky and soda, dancing to rock ‘n roll, playing baseball and smoking Camel cigarettes, but who still depends on his parents for money. (Wikipedia).

TESTO:

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
