From the recording DREAMING IN ITALIAN

I remember the day I wrote this waltz-I had a very high fever, and I sat in my bed strumming in 3/4 time and it just poured out..Mo and Rebecca sang this beautifully, but unfortunately, I don't have a recorded version, just this live version at the Bluebird Cafe in Nashville.

Lyrics

DREAMING IN ITALIAN

I DREAM IN ITALIAN
WHERE GALLIANO FLOWS
I SAIL THE STREETS OF VENICE
WITH GRAPES BETWEEN MY TOES
I'M KISSING AL PACINO
OH HOW HE LOVES ME SO
NO I'M NOT IN A COMA
I'M ON MY WAY TO ROMA, OH I'M

DREAMING IN ITALIAN
THERE'S MICHELANGELO
I'M POSING FOR A PORTRAIT
I'M SO BELLISSIMO
IN MILAN WITH DENIRO
HE HANDS ME ONE WHITE ROSE
OH I'M DREAMING IN ITALIANO

ARRIVEDERCI, ALL MY WOES
CANOLIS BY THE DOZEN
FLY TO SICILY TONITE
TO FIND MY LONG LOST COUSIN 'CAUSE I'M

DREAMING IN ITALIAN
PLEASE DON'T WAKE ME YET
SO MANY HANDSOME ROMEOS FOR THIS ONE JULIET
I'M IN THE SISTINE CHAPEL
CAUSE DINO JUST PROPOSED
OH I'M DREAMING IN ITALIANO
