Lyrics BUONA SERA,
SIGNORINA,
BUONA SERA,
IT IS TIME
TO SAY GOODNIGHT
TO NAPOLI.
THOUGH IT'S HARD FOR US
TO WHISPER,
BUONA SERA
WITH THAT OLD MOON
ABOVE THE MEDITTERANEAN SEA.
IN THE MORNIN'
SIGNORINA
WE'LL GO WALKIN',
WHEN THE MOUNTAINS
HELP THE SUN
COME INTO SIGHT.
AND BY THE LITTLE JEWELRY SHOP
WE'LL STOP AND LINGER
WHILE I BUY A WEDDING RING
FOR YOUR FINGER.
IN THE MEANTIME
LET ME TELL YOU
THAT I LOVE YOU.
BUONA SERA,
SIGNORINA
KISS ME GOODNIGHT,
BUONA SERA,
SIGNORINA
KISS ME GOODNIGHT.

Lyrics SWEETHEART,
I LOVE YOU,
THINK THE WORLD
OF YOU,
BUT I'M AFRAID
YOU DON'T CARE FOR ME.
YOU NEVER SHOW IT,
DON'T LET ME KNOW IT,
EV'RYONE SAYS I'M A FOOL
TO BE PINING
THE WHOLE DAY THROUGH.
WHY DO YOU ACT
LIKE YOU DO?

YOU'RE MEAN TO ME,
WHY MUST YOU BE
MEAN TO ME?
GEE, HONEY,
IT SEEMS TO ME
YOU LOVE TO SEE ME
CRYIN',
I DON'T KNOW WHY.
I STAY HOME
EACH NIGHT,
WHEN YOU SAY
YOU'LL PHONE,
YOU DON'T
AND I'M LEFT ALONE,
SINGIN' THE BLUES
AND SIGHIN'.

YOU TREAT ME COLDLY
EACH DAY OF THE YEAR.
YOU ALWAYS SCOLD ME
WHENEVER SOMEBODY IS NEAR.

DEAR, IT MUST BE
GREAT FUN
TO BE MEAN TO ME.
YOU SHOULDN'T,
FOR CAN'T YOU SEE
WHAT YOU MEAN TO ME?

I TREAT YOU SWEETLY,
I'M YOURS COMPLETELY,
THINK OF YOU,
DREAM OF YOU,
ALL DAY THROUGH.
I THOUGHT I PLEASED YOU,
WHATEVER SEIZED YOU
THAT MADE YOU TREAT ME
THE WAY YOU DO?
LOVE YOU,
I ALWAYS WILL,
THINK OF YOU ONLY,
AND STILL...

YOU'RE MEAN TO ME,
WHY MUST YOU BE
MEAN TO ME?
GEE, HONEY,
IT SEEMS TO ME
YOU LOVE TO SEE ME
CRYIN',
I DON'T KNOW WHY.
I STAY HOME
EACH NIGHT,
WHEN YOU SAY
YOU'LL PHONE,
YOU DON'T
AND I'M LEFT ALONE,
SINGIN' THE BLUES
AND SIGHIN'.

YOU TREAT ME COLDLY
EACH DAY OF THE YEAR.
YOU ALWAYS SCOLD ME
WHENEVER SOMEBODY IS NEAR.

DEAR, IT MUST BE
GREAT FUN TO BE
MEAN TO ME.
YOU SHOULDN'T,
FOR CAN'T YOU SEE
WHAT YOU MEAN TO ME?
