First antipasto,
That's an appetizer fine.
And when you finish,
Some Italian wine.

Pasta Fazoola!
Make you fit or make you fat!
Pasta Fazoola!
Like-a this or like-a that!

If you want-a be a great big sheik,
Have a new gal ev'ry week -
Don't be a fool!
Eat Pasta Fazool!

What makes Babe Ruth strong with the bat?
And makes a little jockey skinny like-a that?
What makes DeLaney think he knows how to fight?
Pasta Fazoola, 'cuz he eats 'em ev'ry night!
What makes Ty Cobb get the umpire's goat?
And Isabella say, "Columbus take a boat!"
What makes a Wop raise a big-a family?
What made-a Lindy-bergh fly across the sea?

Pasta Fazoola!
Attsa very good to eat,
Pasta Fazoola!
Atta never can be beat.

First antipasto,
That's an appetizer fine,
And when you finish,
Some Italian wine.

Pasta Fazoola!
Make a weak-a man-a strong!
Pasta Fazoola!
Make you live-a very long!

If you got-a kids, 2 or 3 or 4,
And you think you'd like to have a coupla more,
Don't be a fool!
Eat Pasta Fazool!

-Van & Schenck, 1927
