 Madre DI Il Nostro


Loving mother, Madre amorosa
Queen of South Philly, former Costa nostra
75 years of Pasta fazool
Who else has a mama, like mine super cool

Four children she raised one girl and three sons
General of this Army, this army of one
Mother whose love, knows nothing more
Than to love what she treasures, 4 treasures adored

Feisty Little lady, but make no mistake
Giving more than she's given, much more than she takes
A blessing to many, friends, family alike
This savvy dear woman, who tells punks take a hike

Make no mistake she holds all her own
This queen of South Philly who needs not a throne
Yesterday as today and tomorrow's to come
She'll rule in our hearts in South Alder's Kingdom

Dedicated to Dolores Napoli.. Happy 75th birthday
