By the Adriatic waters Venetian sons and daughters

And christened it the Piccolino.

And we know that it's the reason why
Everyone this season is strumming and humming a new melody.

Come to the Casino and hear them play the Piccolino.
Dance with your bambino to the strains of the catchy Piccolino.
Drink your glass of Vino, and when you've had your plate of Scallopino,
Make them play the Piccolino, the catchy Piccolino.
And dance to the strains of that new melody, the Piccolino.
