Info:
"Luna mezz'o mare" ("Moon amid the sea") is a comic Neapolitan song with worldwide popularity, traditionally styled as a brisk 6/8 tarantella, based on an earlier version from Sicily. The song portrays a mother-daughter "coming of age" exchange consisting of various comic, and sometimes sexual, innuendos. It is frequently performed at Italian-American wedding receptions and other festive occasions, and was featured at the start of the first Godfather film.


C'e la luna mezz'o mare
Mamma mia me maritari,
Figghia mia, a cu te dari
Mamma mia pensaci tu. O Mamma, piscia fritta baccala O Mamma piscia fritta baccala.

Si ci dugnu lu babberi (barber)
Iddu va, Iddu veni
'u rasolu manu teni. (razor)
Si ci pigghia la fantasia
Mi rasulia la figghia mia.

Chorus (O Mamma..)

Si ci dugnu falignami (woodmaker)
Iddu va, iddu veni
'u chianuzzu manu teni. (plane)
Si ci pigghia la fantasia
Mi chiannuzulia la figghia mia.

Chorus (O Mamma...)

Si ci dugnu lu scapparu (shoemaker)

Chorus (O Mamma...)

Si ci dugnu zuppunaro (farmer)
Iddu va, iddu veni
'u zappuni manu teni. (plow)
Si ci pigghia la fantasia
Mi zappunia la figghia mia.

Chorus (O Mamma...)

Si ci dugnu macillaiu (butcher)
Iddu va, iddu veni
La sasizza manu teni. (sausage)
Si ci pigghia la fantasia
Mi sasizzia la figghia mia.

Chorus (O Mamma...)

Si ci dugnu piscialiolu (fisherman)
Iddu va, iddu veni
E lu pisci manu teni. (fish)
Si ci pigghia la fantasia
Mi pisciulia la figghia mia.
