HEY, PUNCHINELLO From the movie "Three Ring Circus" 1954 (Music by: Jay Livingston / Words by: Ray Evans) Performed by: Dean Martin with Jerry Lewis (Film Soundtrack) There's a famous man who's the idol of ev'ry clown; He started the profession and his tricks he handed down. So ev'ryone who has a yen to be a happy man Calls on Punchinello to help him if he can! Punchinello, `ey Punchinello! La-la-la-la-la-la-la, you wonderful fellow! The fun you brought us, (JL) The things you taught us (Both) Make a sad and weary world wonderf'lly mellow! (Both) Now when we're havin' troubles, a half a mountain high, (Both) A circus clown can knock 'em down and never bat an eye! (Both) Punchinello, `ey Punchinello! (DM) Oh, the face of ev'ry clown's a work of art! (Both) Punchinello, molto bello! You ring a bella, bella bell here in my heart! (JL) Punchinello, `ey Punchinello! (JL) All my life I yearned to be your kind of a fellow! (JL) If I could only make the lonely (JL) Turn a doubtful little laugh into a bellow! (DM) To carry off the children to some enchanted land, (DM) To see their eyes in bright surprise is all that he demands! (JL) `ey Punchinello, (DM) `ey Punchinello! (JL) Let me change my face and tumble up and down! (DM) Punchinello, molto bello! (JL) Do you suppose I have a chance at being a clown! (High voice) Many years ago in the city of Napoli (Deep voice) The famous Punchinello was the man they came to see. (Man) The clown would captivate the peasant or the noble prince (DM) And in ev'ry circus they've done it ever since! (Both) Punchinello, `ey Punchinello! (All) La-la-la-la-la-la-la, you wonderful fellow (All) The fun you brought us, the things you taught us (All) Make a sad and weary world wonderf'lly mellow! (DM) The clown who's? in the circus will get a special pride (DM) When people laugh the kind o' laugh that warms `em up inside! (All) Punchinello, `ey Punchinello! (All) Oh, the face of ev'ry clown's a work of art! (DM & JL) Punchinello, molto bello! (DM & JL) You ring a bella, bella, bella, bella, bella, bella, bella, bella, bel-la, bel-la, bell here in my heart! (All) `ey, Punchinello!
