Look at this woman, hair that’s turned to Silver
That is “La Mamma”, many years I’ve known her
She came one morning, waiting by the front gate
Suitcase and umbrella, lost with no-one there to tell her

“Go home” was written on the wall, outstanding
There on the house she saw, not understanding
She was a stranger, strong among the strangers
No-one’s gonna use her, in her hand the family’s future

Viva viva la mamma
you showed the way
Viva viva la mamma
you’re here to stay
Viva viva la mamma
you’ve been laughing an crying
you’ve been living and dying
you’ve been trying hard

Viva viva la mamma
you take it all
Viva viva la mamma
you never fall
Viva viva la mamma
through the day or the nighttimme
any time was the right time
any time at all

Hrd working mamma gave us all the best years
Took nothing for herself, now she has grey hairs
She had no money, changed that for a hard life
Dreaming of the sunshine,no-one here could give her some time

Turned our backyard into a little bstro
Smelling of pizza, wine and cappuccino
Here ist “la mamma” cooking “a la fresco”
All the people coming, alla round the houses running

Viva viva la mamma
you showed the way
Viva viva la mamma
you’re here to stay
Viva viva la mamma
you’ve been laughing an crying
you’ve been living and dying
you’ve been trying hard

Viva viva la mamma
Viva viva la mamma
Viva viva la mamma
through the day or the nighttimme
any hour was the right time
any time at all

Viva viva la mamma
you take it all
Viva viva la mamma
you never fall
Viva viva la mamma
through the day or the nighttimme
any hour was the right time
any time at all
