Se bella piu satore, je notre so catore,
Je notre qui cavore, je la qu', la qui, la quai!
Le spinash or le busho, cigaretto toto bello,
Ce rakish spagoletto, si la tu, la tu, la tua!
Senora pelefima, voulez-vous le taximeter,
La zionta sur le tita, tu le tu le tu le wa!
Charlie Chaplin (1889–1977), British actor, screenwriter, director. A Worker (Charles Chaplin), Modern Times, opening words of the nonsense song Chaplin's nameless character improvises when he's forced to perform as a singing waiter (1936).
Coming toward the end of the film, these are the first words ever uttered on-screen by Chaplin. In a way, this is a sadly ironic moment, for when Chaplin's tramp character finally made his voice heard, it truly meant the end of the silent movies.
