Like a big pizza pie: That’s amore!

In Napoli where love is king
When boy meets girl, here’s what they say:

When the moon hits your eye like a big 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 will play tippy-tippy-tay, tippy-tippy-tay, like a gay tarantella

When the stars make you drool just like a pasta e 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
Scuzzi me, but you see, back in old Napoli that’s amore

Believe it or not this is a hit for Dean Martin.  And believe it or not Martin is from a district that is in Napoli.  Believe it or not Martin did not learn English until he was five years old.  He was picked on for his broken English.  Believe it not he bootlegged booze.  Believe it or not he fought in the ring and got a broken nose for it.  The cool additive to his name would come later.  He teamed up with Jerry Lewis and the rest is history.  But the beginning was tough. 

So the next time you feel down and out remember Dean and get in love with a za with pepperoni on it.

Pizza the food that soothes the  soul.
