Many a year ago in old Sorrento
A certain ditty was quite the thing
Whenever a mother rocked her baby in Sorrento
This little ditty, she used to sing

Chi-baba, chi-baba, chi-wawa
An' chi-lawa kook-a la goombah
Chi-baba, chi-baba, chi-wawa
My bambino go to sleep

Chi-baba, chi-baba, chi-wawa
An' chi-lawa kook-a la goombah
Chi-baba, chi-baba, chi-wawa
My bambino go to sleep

All the stars are in the skies ready to say "Goodnight"
Can't you see your doll is sleepy too?
Close your drowsy little eyes, mama will hold you tight
While she sings a lullaby to you

Oh, chi-baba, chi-baba, chi-wawa
An' chi-lawa kook-a la goombah
Chi-baba, chi-baba, chi-wawa
My bambino go to sleep

Chi-baba, chi-baba, chi-baba
Chi-baba, chi-wawa, an' chi-lawa

Chi-baba, chi-baba, chi-wawa
An' chi-lawa kook-a la goombah
Chi-baba, chi-baba, chi-wawa
My bambino go to sleep

Chi, chi, chi-baba, chi-baba, chi-wawa
An' chi-lawa kook-a la goombah
Chi-baba, chi-baba, chi-wawa
My bambino go to sleep

All the stars are in the skies ready to say "Goodnight, goodnight"
Can't you see your doll is sleepy too?
Close your drowsy little eyes, mama will hold you tight
While she sings a lullaby to you ever so sweetly

Chi-baba, chi-baba, chi-wawa
An' chi-lawa kook-a la goombah
Chi-baba, chi-baba, chi-wawa
My bambino go to sleep

Chi-baba, chi-baba, chi-wawa
My bambino go to sleep
Chi-baba, chi-baba, chi-wawa
My bambino go to sleep
