Jim Adams’ challenge this week is to post about a song related to faces.  One great novelty song in which “face” features is Joe Dolce’s “Shaddap You Face.”  It was released in late 1980, it set a number of sales records.
Lyrics
‘Allo, I’m-a Giuseppe, I got-a something special-a for you, ready?
Uno, duo, tre, quatro!
When I was a boy just about the eighth-a grade
Mama used to say “don’t stay out-a late with the bad-a boys
Always shoot-a pool Giuseppe going to flunk-a school!”
Boy it make-a me sick all the t’ing I gotta do
I can’t-a get-a no kicks, always got to follow rules
Boy it make-a me sick just to make-a lousy bucks
Got to feel-a like a fool
And-a mama used to say all-a time
What’s-a matter you? Hey! Gotta no respect?
What-a you t’ink you do, why you look-a so sad?
It’s-a not so bad, it’s-a nice-a place
Ah shaddap-a you face!
That’s-a my mama, I can remember!
Big accordion solo!
Ah, play ‘dat again!
Really nice, really nice!
But soon-a come-a day, gonna be a big-a star
Den I make-a T.V. shows and-a movies
Get-a myself a new car but still I be myself
I don’t want-a to change a t’ing
Still a-dance and a-sing
I think-a about-a mama, she used to say
What’s-a matter you? Hey! Gotta no respect?
What-a you t’ink you do, why you look-a so sad?
It’s-a not so bad, it’s-a nice-a place
Ah shaddap-a you face!
Mama, she said it all-a da time!
What’s-a matter you? Hey! Gotta no respect?
What-a you t’ink you do, why you look-a so sad?
It’s-a not so bad, it’s-a nice-a place
Ah shaddap-a you face!
That’s-a my mama!
Hello everybody!
‘At’s out-a dere in-a radio and-a T.V. land
Did you know I had a big-a hit-a song in-a Italy with-a dis?
Shaddap-a you face, I sing-a dis-a song, all-a my fans applaud, Dey clap-a da hands
Dat-a make me feel-a so good
You ought to learn-a dis-a song, it’s-a real-a simple
See, I sing “what’s-a matter you?”, you sing “hey!”
Den I sing-a da rest and den at de end we can all-a sing
Ah, Shaddap-a you face!
Okay, let’s-a try it, really big
Uno, due, tre, quattro!
What’s-a matter you? (Hey!) Gotta no respect? (Hey!)
What-a you t’ink you do (Hey!) why you look-a so sad? (Hey!)
It’s-a not so bad (Hey!) it’s-a nice-a place
Ah shaddap-a you face!
That’s great, we gonna do it better this time!
What’s-a matter you? (Hey!) Gotta no respect? (Hey!)
What-a you t’ink you do (Hey!) why you look-a so sad? (Hey!)
It’s-a not so bad (Hey!) it’s-a nice-a place
Ah shaddap-a you face!
Okay, one time for mama, everybody!
What’s-a matter you? (Hey!) Gotta no respect? (Hey!)
What-a you t’ink you do (Hey!) why you look-a so sad? (Hey!)
It’s-a not so bad (Hey!) it’s-a nice-a place
Ah, shaddap-a you face!
