Please Mr. Columbus

Please Mr. Columbus
(Lou Monte)

In fourteen hundred ninety two three ships sailed out to sea
The Nina and the Pinta and Santa Marie
As they sailed the stormy seas on that historic day
From way up in the crows nest you could hear Luigi say,

CHO:  Please Mr. Columbus turna the ship around
      Take me back I want to feel my two feet on the ground
      Why you tella Isabella that the world is round
      Please Mr. Columbus turna the ship around.

Then Chris took out his mandolin and he began to play
They sang and danced the tarantella until the break of day
They ate up all the provalone and drank up all the wine
But still up in the crows nest you could hear Luigi crying,

And then one day they sighted land just off the starboard side
Columbus said "I told you so the journey's over now"
An Indian shouted from the shore, (le petanta u pitza pan)
Luigi turned around and said, (hey, doosie putta Italiano)

Please Mr. Columbus don't take me back no more
I'm gonna stay right here and make the chief my father in law
I'm glad you tella Isabella that the world is round
I don't know where we are but there's paisanos all around.
