with Jerry Lewis
in the movie "Three Ring Circus"

There's a famous man who's the idol of every clown
He started the profession and his tricks he handed down
So everyone who has a yen to be a happy man
Calls on Punchinello to help him if he can

Punchinello, hey Punchinello
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 wonderfully mellow
(Both) Now when we're having trouble, the half a mountain high
(Both) A circus clown can knock 'em down and never bat an eye
(Both) Punchinello, hey Punchinello
(DM) Oh the face of every clown's a work of art
(Both) Punchinello molto bello you ring a bell a bell a bell here in my heart

(JL) Punchinello, hey Punchinello
(JL) All my life I yearned to be your kind of fellow
(JL) If I could only make a lonely
(JL) Turn a gals little laugh into a bellow

(DM) To carry off the children to some enchanted lands
(DM) To see their eyes and bright surprise is all that he demands
(JL) Hey Punchinello (DM) Hey Punchinello
(JL) Let me change my face and tumble up and down
(DM) Hey Punchinello molto bello
(JL) Do you suppose I have a chance at being a clown

(High voice) Many hear the call in the city of Napoli
(Deep voice) The babe with Punchinello was the man they came to see
(Man) The clown would captivate the peasants or the noble prince
(DM) And in every circus they've done it ever since

(Both) Punchinello, hey Punchinello
(All) La la la la la you wonderful fellow
(All) The fun you brought us the things you taught us
(All) Make a sad a weary world wonderfully mellow

(DM) The clown in the circus will get a special pride
(DM) When people laugh the kind of laugh that warms them up inside
(All) Punchinello, hey Punchinello
(All) Oh the face of every clown's a work of art
(DM & JL) Punchinello molto bello
(DM & JL) You ring a bell a bell a bell a bell a bell a bell a bell a bell a bell a bell a bell a bell here in my heart
(All) Hey, Punchinello

(DM & JL) Punchinello, hey Punchinello oh the face of every clown's a work of art
(DM & JL) Punchinello molto bello
You ring a bell a bell a bell a bell a bell
A bell a bell a bell a bell a bell
Here in my heart
