lyrics

My family is full of Italian folk
They act like they have money but they're really broke
I'd like to help them out, but I don't have the cash
'Cause I spent it all to wax my mustache

Our house is really big and there's marble everywhere
There's plastic on the sofa and doilies on the chairs
Mama shouts, "Dinner's ready, but first, let's say a prayer."
So we pray, then we fight, grab our food and go upstairs

YELL, If you're Italian
YELL, If you're Italian
YELL, If you're Italian
If not the case, stay in place
And shut up a-you face

Pop's a contractor and he works really hard
He even put a fountain in our back yard
He put it on top of where the garden used to grow
And ever since then, we haven't seen our Uncle Joe

We yell when we talk and we fight every night
My pop will kill my boyfriend when he finds out he's not white
His blood pressure's high and I'm waiting for the day
That he has a stroke when he finds out my brothers gay

YELL, If you're Italian
YELL, If you're Italian
YELL, If you're Italian
If not the case, stay in place
And shut up a you face

Every Christmas Mama never likes what Papa buys
She'll pretend to love it for a second but then cries
This happens every year, so it's never a surprise
Poppa should stop buying purses from Chinese guys

Poppa grows grapes 'cause mama likes wine
He gives her plenty of it 'cause she's cranky all the time
They crush the grapes together, and we think it's really sweet
But I'm never gonna try it 'cause it tastes like their feet

YELL, If you're Italian
YELL, If you're Italian
YELL, If you're Italian
If not the case, stay in place
And shut up a you face
