That's Amore --- Chords - - Cart

Jerry Lewis and Dean Martin were a comedy team in the early 1950's and for an upcoming movie called The Caddy, Jerry Lewis paid a composer and a lyricist $30,000 to come up with a song for the movie that Dean could sing. That's Amore, which Amore means "love" in Italian, was the result. The song became a signature song for Dean Martin and peaked at #2 in both the US and the UK and hit #1 in Australia.

Thats Amore Chords & Lyrics

In Napoli where love is king
When boy meets girl here's what they say

When the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie - That's amore
When the world seems to shine like you've had too much wine - That's amore
Bells will ring ting-a-ling-a-ling, ting-a-ling-a-ling - And you'll sing "Vita bella"
Hearts will play tippy-tippy-tay, tippy-tippy-tay - Like a gay tarantella
When the stars make you drool just like a pasta e fasul - That's amore
When you dance down the street with a cloud at your feet you're in love
When you walk in a dream but you know you're not dreaming signore
Scusami, but you see, back in old Napoli - That's amore

When the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie, that's amore - That's amore
When the world seems to shine like you've had too much wine, that's amore - That's amore
Bells will ring ting-a-ling-a-ling, ting-a-ling-a-ling and you'll sing "Vita bella" (Vita bella)
Hearts will play tippy-tippy-tay, tippy-tippy-tay - Like a gay tarantella
When the stars make you drool just like a pasta e fasul, that's amore That's amore
When you dance down the street with a cloud at your feet you're in love
When you walk in a dream but you know you're not dreaming signore
Scusami, but you see, back in old Napoli - That's amore
That’s amore, that's amore

Because this song does a half-step chord change near the end of the song, it complicates the song somewhat and adds a host of additional chords. However you could simply keep the song in the original stating key and ignore the half-step.

The Thats Amore chords here are Am - Dm - E7 - A - B7 - Db - Gb - E - D - F - A# - C7 - D7 - G - Eb and an Ebm.
