The Lyrics

Being 100% Sicilian on both sides, I qualify to compose this tribute to REAL Italian food.
Just throw those jarred sauces in the trash
Preserved with poison I might get a rash.
Today’s pizza is a bubblin’ crude
I like that old time Dago food.

Don’t try to take me to a food chain
The Olive Garden should be burned in Spain.
I’ve been there twice and got my pasta all screwed,
I like that old time Dago food.

Still like that old time Dago food
Meatballs and sausage get you in the mood.
Chased with wine you’ll end up in the nude
With that old time Dago food.

Won’t go and buy their little “combo”
Served by a little Irish bimbo.
There’s just one way to please this Sidgy dude,
Just serve that old time Dago food.

Call me a WOP, call me greazeball
Italian barbers use that best brand WAHL.
Cannoli’s always make their guts protrude
Because they’re old time Dago food.

Still like that old time Dago food
Clams and Linguini got this WOP subdued.
We left “the Garden” and we all just booed
We like that old time Dago food.

As an Irishman, I don't share your enthusiasm for "Dago" cuisine, nor your disdain for Irish waitresses. But I do appreciate well written songs, such as this. The Irish and Italians seem to get along quite well. After all, the two countries even share the same flag. How much closer can you get than that?

At least three times a week I like to serve it, but in your case Jimbo, five times...

Thanks Gents! Patrick, I've got to admit I have a weakness for Corned Beef & Cabbage and was recently scolded by a Neil Young fan for posting "Corned Beef and the Cabbage Done". Is your flag upside down, or is mine? Sometimes Irish I was Scotish.

Thanks Tim, Harry, no doubt just the right combo of homemade sauce with tons of garlic and wine is the ultimate afrodeeziac, screw it, I'm not looking up the spelling.

Give the ~Campagna~ Food anytime, Sir ! . . actually it was I, that first brought the "Po" up on the Campagna, and cooked my own tomato sauce, taught to me by my Awesome- AustroDad.
