"Ciribiribin" is a merry Italian ballad in three quarter time, composed by Alberto Pestalozza in 1898 with lyrics by Carlo Tiochet.
The distinguishing feature of the song is repeated use of the five note phrase that forms the song name. In the sheet music the name is indicated to be enunciated "chiribiribee" to allow singers to hold the vowel at the end as long as they like.
On the James/Sinatra recording of the song, Sinatra enunciated the trailing "n".


Su finiscila coi baci
Bel moruccio biricchin
Ma non vedi tu la luna
Che dal ciel fa capolin?
Lascia pur la luna spii
Noi las ciamola spiar
Anzi, il pallido suo raggio
Ci consiglia a seguitar!
Ma poi chissà? Cosa dirà?
E via dirà quelche vorrà
A - ha, A - ha
Ciribiribin, Ciribiribin, Ciribiribin
Ciribiribin, Ciribiribin, Ciribiribin
Ciribiribin che bel faccin
Che sguardo dolce assassin
Ciribiribin, che bel nassin
Che bel dentin, che bel bocchin!
Ciribiribin che bel faccin
Che squardo dolce assassin
Ciribiribin, Ciribiribin
Ciribiribin, Ciribiribin
Ciribiribin che bel faccin
