  • Song Lyrics:
    Shaddap You Face

    'Allo
    I'm-a Giuseppe

    I got-a something special-a for you
    ready?
    Uno
    duo
    tre
    quatro!

    (verse:)
    When I was a boy, just about-a eighth-a grade,
    Mama used to say, don't-a stay out late,
    with the bad-a boys, always shoot-a pool,
    Giuseppe gonna flunk-a school.


    Boy, it make-a me sick, all the t'ing I gotta do.
    Can't-a getta no kicks, always gotta follow rules
    Boy, it make-a me sick, just-a make a lousy bucks,
    I gotta feel like a fool.
    (and mama used to say all-a time:)


    (chorus:)
    What'sa matta you, hey,
    Gotta no respect, whatta you think you do,
    Why you looka so sad?
    It's-a not so bad, it's-a nice-a place,
    Ah, Shaddap You Face.

    That's-a my mama. I can remember!
    Big accordion solo!
    Ah ! Play dat again! Really nice
    really nice!

    (verse:)
    Soon-a come-a day, gonna be-a big-a star,
    Gonna make a movies, buy a nice-a car,
    but still-a be myself, I'm-a never change a thing,
    always dance and sing.
    ('cause I remember mama used to say:)


    (chorus:)
    What'sa matta you, hey,
    Gotta no respect, whatta you think you do,
    Why you looka so sad?
    It's-a not so bad, it's-a nice-a place,
    Ah, Shaddap You Face.


    (talking section)
    "Hello, everybody, that's out there in radio and television land.
    Did you know I had a bit hit song in Italy with this: 'Shaddap You Face'?
    I sing this song and all my fans applaud, they clap their hands, that make me feel so good.
    You ought to learn this song, It's really simple -
    I sing: 'Whatsa Matta You?" You sing: 'Hey!"
    , you sing the rest and at the end, we can all sing 'Ah, shaddap You Face!'
    Ok Let's try it, really big -
    Uno, Duo, Tre, Quatro:"


    (chorus:)
    What'sa matta you, hey,
    Gotta no respect, whatta you think you do,
    Why you looka so sad?
    It's-a not so bad, it's-a nice-a place,
    Ah, Shaddap You Face.
