The Lyrics

First Masseria, then, Salvatore
Would not control New York no more
These big crime bosses were bid goodbye
By that Charles "Lucky" Luciano guy

Blame It On The Cosa Nostra
With it's whacky ways
Blame It On The Cosa Nostra
Those old gangster days
Oh, it all began way back in Sicily
The theme that makes a great movie
Blame It On The Cosa Nostra
The Mafia

(A random killing, it?)
No, no, The Cosa Nostra
(Just got shot, like "duh"?)
No, no, The Cosa Nostra
(You mean it was a hit?)
Yeah, yeah, The Cosa Nostra
(The Mafia)

When Tom Dewey gave Luciano time
From his prison cell, remained boss of crime
During World War Two Lucky used his clout
Helped us win the war, then we threw him out

Blame It On The Cosa Nostra
With it's whacky ways
Blame It On The Cosa Nostra
Those old gangster days
Yes, it all began way back in Sicily
The theme that makes a great movie
Blame It On The Cosa Nostra
The Mafia

(Then, from Cuba shores)
Still ran The Cosa Nostra
(He was Godfather)
Still ran The Cosa Nosta
(Big crime family wars)
Yeah, yeah, The Cosa Nostra
(The Mafia)

Carlo Gambino was a fam'ly head
As was Genovese, it was said
In more recent years, Teflon Gotti ruled
Until by Sam Gravano, he was fooled

Blame It On The Cosa Nostra
And it's whacky ways
Blame It On The Cosa Nostra
In the gangster days
Oh, it all began back in Sicily
The theme that makes a great movie
Blame It On The Cosa Nostra
The Mafia

(Not un-organized)
No, not The Cosa Nostra
(Not their last hurrah)
No, not The Cosa Nostra
(They are still wise guys)
Yeah, yeah, The Cosa Nostra
(The Mafia)

(Not their last hurrah)
No not The Cosa Nostra
(They are still wise guys)
FADE
Yeah, yeah, The Cosa Nostra
