Original


Puorte o cazone cu 'nu stemma arreto,
'na cuppulella ca' visiera alzata.
Passe scampanianno pe' Tuleto
comme a 'nu guappo pe' te fa guardà.

Tu vuo' fa' l' americano,
mmericano, mmericano,
siente a me, chi t' ho fa fa.
Tu vuoi vivere alla moda
ma se bevi whisky and soda
po' te sente 'e disturbà.

Tu abballe 'o Rock and Rol,
tu giochi a basebal,
ma 'e solde pe' Camel
chi te li dà,
la borsetta di mammà?

Tu vuo' fa' l' americano,
mmericano, mmericano,
ma si nato in Italy,
siente a mme, non ce sta' niente a ffa
okay, napolitan.
Tu vuo' fa' l' american,
tu vuò' fa' l' american.

Comme te po' capì chi te vò bene
si tu le parle 'mmiezzo americano.
Quando se fa l 'ammore sotto 'a luna
come te vene 'n capa e di:"I love you".

Tu vuo' fa' l' americano,
mmericano, mmericano,
siente a me, chi t' ho fa fa.
Tu vuoi vivere alla moda
ma se bevi whisky and soda
po' te sente 'e disturbà.

Tu abballe 'o Rock and Rol,
tu giochi a basebal,
ma 'e solde pe' Camel
chi te li dà,
la borsetta di mammà?

Tu vuo' fa' l' americano,
mmericano, mmericano,
ma si nato in Italy,
siente a mme non ce sta' niente a ffa
okay, napolitan.
Tu vuo' fa' l' american,
tu vuo' fa' l' american.

Tu vuo' fa' l' americano,
mmericano, mmericano,
siente a me, chi t' ho fa fa.
Tu vuoi vivere alla moda
ma se bevi whisky and soda
po' te sente 'e disturbà.

Tu abballe 'o Rock and Rol,
tu giochi a basebal,
ma 'e solde pe' Camel
chi te li dà,
la borsetta di mammà?

Tu vuo' fa' l' americano,
mmericano, mmericano,
ma si nato in Italy,
siente a mme non ce sta' niente a ffa
okay, napolitan.
Tu vuo' fa' l' american,
tu vuo' fa' l' american.

Whisky and soda e Rock and Rol.
Whisky and soda e Rock and Rol.
Whisky and soda e Rock and Rol.

Tu vuo' fa' l' americano,
mmericano, mmericano,
ma si nato in Italy,
siente a mme non ce sta' niente a ffa
okay, napolitan.
Tu vuo' fa' l' american,
tu vuo' fa' l' american.

Translation


You’re wearing trousers with the label showing…
a lil-cap with the brim raised …
you walk cocky along Tuleto
like a mobster, to make people look at you

You want to act like an american
‘merican, ‘merican…
hear me out, who’s asking you to.
You want to live in fashion
but when you drink whiskey and soda
you feel queasy afterwards.

You’re dancing to rock’n’roll
you're playing baseball
but the doe for the Camels
who gave it to you,
Mommy’s purse?

You want to act like an american
‘merican, ‘merican…
but you’re born in Italy!
hear me out, there’s nothing you can do
ok neapolitan.
You want to act like an american
You want to act like an american.

How can they understand you those who want you the most
If you speak to them half american?
When you’re making love under the moon
how does it work for you to say “I love you”?

You want to act like an american
‘merican, ‘merican…
hear me out, who’s asking you to.
You want to live in fashion
but when you drink whiskey and soda
you feel queasy afterwards.

You’re dancing to rock’n’roll
you're playing baseball
but the doe for the Camels
who gave it to you
Mommy’s purse?

You want to act like an american
‘merican, ‘merican…
but you’re born in Italy!
hear me out, there’s nothing you can do
ok neapolitan?
You want to act like an american
You want to act like an american.

You want to act like an american
‘merican, ‘merican…
hear me out, who’s asking you to,
You want to live in fashion
but when you drink whiskey and soda
you feel queasy afterwards.

You’re dancing to rock’n’roll
you're playing baseball
but the doe for the Camels
who gave it to you,
Mommy’s purse?

You want to act like an american
‘merican, ‘merican…
but you’re born in Italy!
hear me out, there’s nothing you can do
ok neapolitan?
You want to act like an american
You want to act like an american.

Whiskey and soda and Rock and Rol.
Whiskey and soda and Rock and Rol.
Whiskey and soda and Rock and Rol.

You want to act like an american
‘merican, ‘merican…
but you’re born in Italy!
hear me out, there’s nothing you can do
ok neapolitan?
You want to act like an american
You want to act like an american.

Whiskey and soda and Rock and Rol.
Whiskey and soda and Rock and Rol.
Whiskey and soda and Rock and Rol...
