Description

Instrumental arrangement (with variation) of the old music hall song Oh! Oh! Antonio

Words of the original song:
1. In quaint native dress an Italian maid
Was deep in distress as the streets she strayed
Searching in every part for her false sweetheart
And his ice cream cart
Her English was bad it cannot be denied
And so to herself in Italian she cried

“Oh! Oh! Antonio!
He’s gone away
Left me alone-i-o
All on my own-i-o
I want to meet him with his new sweetheart
Then up will go Antonio and his ice cream cart”

2. So sad grew the plight of this fair young lass
She’d faint at the sight of an ice cream glass
She dreamed nigh ev’ry day he’d come back to stay
But he’d fade away
Her old hurdygurdy all day she’d parade
And this she would sing to each tune that it played:

“Oh! Oh! Antonio!
He’s gone away
Left me alone-i-o
All on my own-i-o
I want to meet him with his new sweetheart
Then up will go Antonio and his ice cream cart”

3. She sought in despair for Antonio,
And looked ev’rywhere that she thought he’d go.
Soon she to pine began as each face she’d scan
For her ice cream man.
She faded away, but they say in the street
The ghost of that girl in Italian repeats:

“Oh! Oh! Antonio!
He’s gone away
Left me alone-i-o
All on my own-i-o
I want to meet him with his new sweetheart
Then up will go Antonio and his ice cream cart”
