"Balla Balla Bambina" is a song that is sung primarily in Italian.

Transcript

Anthony: The words "Balla, Balla, Bambina" are asking of a little girl in the song to dance. Now we'd like not just Amy to dance, but everybody. Or in Italian: Nuato Tuti!

Lyrics (Itailian)

Balla balla o balla bambina 
Balla balla fina mattina 
Balla balla o balla piccina
Balla balla e non ti fermar

Se ti svegli alla mattina
Balla pure con tua cugina
Balla balla o balla bambina
Balla balla e non ti fermar

Balla balla o balla bambina
Balla balla fina mattina
Balla balla o balla piccina
Balla balla e non ti fermar

Balla balla o balla bambina
Balla balla fina mattina 
Balla balla o balla piccina
Balla balla e non ti fermar

L’atro giorno mi sono svegliato 
E ti ho chiesto cosa voi far
L’atro giorno mi sono svegliato 
Tu mi hai detto andiamo ballar

Balla balla o balla bambina
Balla balla fina mattina
Balla balla o balla piccina 
Balla balla e non ti fermar

La, la, la, lai, lai, la, la, la, lai, lai
Lai, lai, la la la, lai

Lyrics (English)

[1]

Dance, dance, oh, dance little girl
dance, dance, until the morning
dance, dance, oh, dance you child
dance, dance and don't stop

Seven stars in the morning
dance with your cousin as well
Dance, dance, oh, dance little girl
dance, dance and don't stop

Dance, dance, oh, dance little girl
dance, dance, until the morning
dance, dance, oh, dance you child
dance, dance and don't stop

Dance, dance, oh, dance little girl
dance, dance, until the morning
dance, dance, oh, dance you child
dance, dance and don't stop

The other day I woke up
and asked you "what can we do today?"
the other day I woke up
and you told me "Let's go dancing!"

Dance, dance, oh, dance little girl
dance, dance, until the morning
dance, dance, oh, dance you child
dance, dance and don't stop

La, la, la, lai, lai, la, la, la, lai, lai
Lai, lai, la la la, lai
La, la, la, lai, lai, la, la, la, lai, lai
Lai, lai, la la la, lai

La, la, la, lai, lai, la, la, la, lai, lai
Lai, lai, la la la, lai
La, la, la, lai, lai, la, la, la, lai, lai
Lai, lai, la la la, lai
