A little this,
A little that
And we might just

Throw in your hat
Some nice fagiol
E porro, too

E melenzan just for you
Then we stir it with a stick

Until you see it get-a thick

And when the meat fall off the bone

If you want
To make it nice
Then you add-a just
A little spice
Some pepperon
E basilico

And some prosciutt
And there you go
Then we stir it with a stick
Until it starts to get-a thick
And when the meat fall off the bone
That's when you know you got some minestron

Oh. Mamma. I hope we eat-a soon
I want to eat it now
Even though it’s only noon

Oh. Mamma. I hope we eat-a soon
I want a big- a bowl
‘Cause I got-a big-a spoon

I want a big- a bowl
‘Cause I got-a big-a spoon


Instrumental **** F, C, F, D, G

C
And then we go
to the garage
where we keep
the good formage
And we grate
a little bit
Right on top
And now, we sit
‘Cause we stirred it with a stick
And now you see, it’s nice and thick
So, come on-a over to my home
‘Cause we’re gonna have a bowl of minestron

Yeah, come on-a over to my home
‘Cause we’re gonna have a bowl of minestron-to-night
