Meglio stasera
Baby go go go
Or as we natives say
Fa subito!

If you’re ever gonna kiss me
It had better be tonight
While the mandolins are playing
And stars are bright

If you’ve anything to tell me
It had better be tonight
Or somebody else may tell me
And whisper the words just right

Meglio stasera
Baby go go go
Or as we natives say
Fa subito!

If you’re ever gonna hold me
It had better be tonight
Or somebody else may hold me
And might make me feel just the right

Meglio stasera
Baby go go go
Or as we natives say
Fa subito!

For this poor Americano
Who knows little of your speech
Be a nice Italiana
And start to teach

Go ahead

Show me how in old Milano
Lovers hold each other tight
But I want you sweet paesano
It had better be tonight

Meglio stasera
Baby go go go
Or as we natives say
“Fa subito!”
