Mama Corleone's song at Connie's wedding
August 4, 2007 3:43 PM   Subscribe

In the movie, The Godfather, what is the song that Mama Corleone sings at Connie's wedding?

In the opening scene of the movie, Connie's wedding, Mama Corleone is called up on stage to sing. She then sings a traditional Italian song (at least, I think it is a traditional song). Does the hive-mind know the name of this song? Any thoughts on where I can get a copy?

This transcript says that it's the first verse of "Luna Mezz'o Mare" (warning: spelling apparently varies and I don't speak any kind of Italian). More information here. English translation here.
