"Samba Italiano" (Italian Samba) is a popular samba song composed in 1965 by Adoniran Barbosa (1912-1982), who was a son of Italian immigrants of the city of Valinhos, Brazil, and knew well the pidgin Italian-Portuguese dialect spoken in the streets of São Paulo, mostly in the sections of Mooca, Brás and Bexiga.

The lyrics are very funny and non-sensical, at least for those Italian-Brazilians who can understand the language (a great number of paulistas).
