lyrics

Don't anybody worry, it's only me
Tony, Tony, Tony, Tony B.
Just kindly hand me over your money
Then you have my word, I will let you be

Down in the borough
Of Little Italy
There thrived a robber
Whose name was Tony B.
He would come through
the front door of the bank
Just like a gent
And gun in hand
He would say:

Don't anybody worry, it's only me
Tony, Tony, Tony, Tony B.
Just kindly hand me over your money
Then you have my word, I will let you be

Being so charming
Though callous, he became
The whole town's darling
And on top of his fame
The citizens voted the man
To Parliament
Made him a brigand
With no gun

Oh Antonino
Was a cold-hearted bambino
Who turned out a bandito
A politico
Who would campaign around saying:

Don't anybody worry, it's only me
Tony, Tony, Tony, Tony B.
Just kindly hand me over your money
Then you have my word, I will let you be

Though someone swore
That crime, it doesn't pay
Tony's wealth soared
At least until the day
Some hunters mistook him for a mean
Wolverine
And shot him clean
To the ground

Oh Antonino
Was a cold-hearted bambino
Who turned out a bandito
Now he's a morto
Whose words carved on his grave are saying:

Here lies only me, Tony B.
What does the "B" stand for? Beats me
Yet, I can remember clearly
What Ma would tell me as a baby:

"Oh beware Tony
Before glutonny
Beguiles your stony
Beating heart"
