Ricci’s

I never forget this place
Capisce?
Ricci’s Roma
Via Genova 32
A Pizzaria down a cul de sac
A quiet street but boy
The noise inside!

Tables and chairs
Everybody talking
There is so much to discuss
It cannot wait
Pizza vino coming
To your table
The waiter here since
1938

Two years I spent in Roma
In the 80s
Days of lectures
Days of study too
Evenings we go walking
Nelle strade
Eat at Ricci’s
Best thing you can do

Now the Euros
Summon me
Remember
All those lovely times
You went along
God bless those happy days
I spent among you
Viva Italia
Now I sing your song
