"Amore" is Italian for "Love", so the song is "That's Love". 
 
Lyrics: 
 
(In Napoli where love is King) 
(When boy meets girl) 
(Here's what they say) 
 
When the moon hits your eye 
Like a big-a pizza pie (like a big pizza pie) 
That's amore 
When the world seems to shine 
Like you've had too much wine 
That's amore 
 
Bells'll ring (Bells will ring) 
Ting-a-ling-a-ling 
Ting-a-ling-a-ling 
And you'll sing "Vita bella" 
Hearts'll play (Hearts will play) 
Tippi-tippi-tay 
Tippi-tippi-tay 
Like a gay tarantella 
 
When the stars make you drool 
Joost-a like pasta fazool (Just like pasta fazool) 
That's amore 
When you dance down the street 
With a cloud at your feet, you're in love 
When you walk in a dream 
But you know you're not dreamin', signore 
'Scusami, but you see (Excuse me, but you see) 
Back in old Napoli, that's amore 
 
Lucky fella
