About Mamma

"Mamma" is a popular song composed in 1940 by Cesare Andrea Bixio with Italian lyrics by Bixio Cherubini under the title "Mamma son tanto felice" (Mum, I am so happy). The performers of this song included: Beniamino Gigli, Luciano Tajoli, Richard Tucker, Claudio Villa, Robertino Loreti, Violetta Villas, Muslim Mogomayev, Luciano Pavarotti, Toto Cutugno, Andrea Bocelli, Sergio Franchi, Romina Arena, Jon Christos and Mario Frangoulis. In 1946, the English lyrics were written by Harold Barlow and Phil Brito who had their popular recording hit the charts in May 1946 under the title of "Mama". British singer David Whitfield also had a hit with the song, which reached number 12 in the UK Singles Chart in 1955. The British lyrics did differ from the American ones. The song was re-arranged and re-written by Geoffrey Parsons and John Turner. The song was also recorded by Connie Francis in 1959 for her album Connie Francis Sings Italian Favorites, with her hit single released in February 1960. Arranged and conducted by Tony Osborne, the Connie Francis version of the song was a number two hit in the UK, and peaked at number eight on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. The song in German (as well as in Dutch and in English) was recorded by Dutch child singer Heintje Simons for his album Heintje in 1967 (lyrics written by Bruno Balz). Also Heintje performed Mama in Zum Teufel mit der Penne (1968) comedy film.

Mamma son' tanto felice
Perché ritorno da te 
La mia
Canzone ti dice
Che il più bel giorno per me
Mamma son'
Tanto felice
Vivere lontano perché

Mamma solo
Per te
La mia canzone vola
Mamma sarai con me
Tu
Non sarai più sola
Quanto ti voglio bene
Queste parole
D'amore
Che ti sospira il mio cuore
Forse non s'usano
Più
Mamma ma la canzone mia, più bella sei tu
Sei tu
La vita e per la vita non ti lascio mai più

Sento la
Mano tua stanca
Cerca i miei riccioli d'or
Sento e la
Voce ti manca
La ninna nanna d'allor
Oggi la testa tua
Bianca
Io voglio stringere al cuor 

Mamma solo
Per te
La mia canzone vola
Mamma sarai con me
Tu
Non sarai più sola
Quanto ti voglio bene
Queste parole
D'amore
Che ti sospira il mio cuore
Forse non s'usano
Più
Mamma ma la canzone mia, più bella sei tu
Sei tu
La vita e per la vita non ti lascio mai più

Mamma, mai più
