Rosemary Clooney

Rosemary Clooney (May 23, 1928 – June 29, 2002) was an American singer and actress. She came to prominence in the early 1950s with the novelty hit "Come On-a My House" written by William Saroyan and his cousin Ross Bagdasarian (better known as David Seville, the father figure of Alvin and the Chipmunks), which was followed by other pop numbers such as "Botch-a-Me" (a cover version of the Italian song Ba-Ba-Baciami Piccina by Alberto Rabagliati), "Mambo Italiano", "Tenderly", "Half as Much", "Hey There" and "This Ole House", although she had success as a jazz vocalist.

't Was on the Isle of Capri that I found her 
Beneath the shade of an old walnut tree 
Oh, I can still see the flowers blooming round her 
Where we met on the Isle of Capri 

She was as sweet as a rose at the dawning 
But somehow fate hadn't meant her for me 
And though I sailed with the tide in the morning 
Still my heart's on the Isle of Capri 

Summertime was nearly over 
Blue Italian sky above 
I said "Lady, I'm a rover, 
Can you spare a sweet word of love?" 

She whispered softly "It's best not to linger" 
And then as I kissed her hand I could see 
She wore a lovely meatball on her finger 
't Was goodbye at the Villa Capri 

Summertime was nearly over 
Blue Italian sky above 
I said "Lady, I'm a rover, 
Can you spare a fine word of love?" 

She whispered softly "It's best not to linger" 
And then as I kissed her hand I could see 
She wore a plain golden ring on her finger 
't Was goodbye on the Isle of Capri (3x)
