Notes: ~ "O Marenariello" is " . . . another lovely old Italian standard, adapted and arranged by Nick Perito for Perry, with vocal arrangements by Ray Charles, is sung completely in Italian by Mr. C. and the chorus. The song is a memory of another era, but it says something universal about all lovers: 'Let us go together by the sea and make love, you and I, heart to heart . . . for I may perish for the love of you.' "

( notes from "The Incomparable Como" Readers Digest UK compilation 1975 )
