Confessions of an Italiaphile


    All things Italian, Mama Mia

    Show me the nearest Trattoria!

    I go berserk in an Italian Deli

    I’m enthralled by the works of Botticelli

    My favorite actress was Anna Magnani

    I bought the video of Mondo Cane

    At the Da Vinci Club I met a fellow

    He cooked real good and looked like Marcello

    He made a wonderful Mostaccioli

    So I up and married Mr. Spagnoli

    My advice to you when you’re feeling blue

    And you think that everyone fails ya

    Have a dish of pasta, it’s healthful, it’s true

    And good for anything else that ails ya!
