Hetty & the Jazzato Band – Tu Vuo’ Fa’ L’Americano

An evening pause: The title means “You Want to Be American”. The song was written in 1956, and is “about an Italian who affects a contemporary American lifestyle, drinking whisky and soda, dancing to rock ‘n roll, playing baseball and smoking Camel cigarettes, but who still depends on his parents for money.”

Hat tip Tom Biggar.
