Hi, ard mhacha - I've crosslinked the other "Punchinello" threads I could find. My frind Dick Holdstock is well-known for his spirited version of John Pole's Punch and Judy (the "that's the way you do it" version).
I think maybe you're looking for the play-party song that's linked to above.

there's two versions of Punchinello at Kiddiddles - and I also found This Dean Martin song:


HEY, PUNCHINELLO (1954)
with Jerry Lewis
in the movie "Three Ring Circus"


There's a famous man who's the idol of every clown
He started the profession and his tricks he handed down
So everyone who has a yen to be a happy man
Calls on Punchinello to help him if he can

Punchinello, hey Punchinello
La la la la la la you wonderful fellow
The fun you brought us (JL) The things you taught us
(Both) Make a sad and weary world wonderfully mellow
(Both) Now when we're having trouble, the half a mountain high
(Both) A circus clown can knock 'em down and never bat an eye
(Both) Punchinello, hey Punchinello
(DM) Oh the face of every clown's a work of art
(Both) Punchinello molto bello you ring a bell a bell a bell here in my heart

(JL) Punchinello, hey Punchinello
(JL) All my life I yearned to be your kind of fellow
(JL) If I could only make a lonely
(JL) Turn a gals little laugh into a bellow

(DM) To carry off the children to some enchanted lands
(DM) To see their eyes and bright surprise is all that he demands
(JL) Hey Punchinello (DM) Hey Punchinello
(JL) Let me change my face and tumble up and down
(DM) Hey Punchinello molto bello
(JL) Do you suppose I have a chance at being a clown

(High voice) Many hear the call in the city of Napoli
(Deep voice) The babe with Punchinello was the man they came to see
(Man) The clown would captivate the peasants or the noble prince
(DM) And in every circus they've done it ever since

(Both) Punchinello, hey Punchinello
(All) La la la la la you wonderful fellow
(All) The fun you brought us the things you taught us
(All) Make a sad a weary world wonderfully mellow

(DM) The clown in the circus will get a special pride
(DM) When people laugh the kind of laugh that warms them up inside
(All) Punchinello, hey Punchinello
(All) Oh the face of every clown's a work of art
(DM & JL) Punchinello molto bello
(DM & JL) You ring a bell a bell a bell a bell a bell a bell a bell a bell a bell a bell a bell a bell here in my heart
(All) Hey, Punchinello

(DM & JL) Punchinello, hey Punchinello oh the face of every clown's a work of art
(DM & JL) Punchinello molto bello
You ring a bell a bell a bell a bell a bell
A bell a bell a bell a bell a bell
Here in my heart

You may be looking for "Laugh Clown Laugh"

Fred Waring's Pennsylvanians (vocal: Ted Waring) - 1928
Ted Lewis & His Band (vocal: Ted Lewis) - 1928


Life is a play and we all play a part
The Lover, the Dreamer, the Clown
The Dreamer and Lover are always in tears
The Clown spreads sunshine around
The life with a smile is the life worthwhile
The Clown till the curtain comes down

Even though you're only make believing
Laugh, Clown, laugh!
Even though something inside is grieving
Laugh, Clown, laugh!
Don't let your heart grow too mellow
Just be a real Punchinello, fellow

You're supposed to brighten up a place
And laugh, Clown, laugh!
Paint a lot of smiles around your face
And laugh, Clown, don't frown
Dressed in your best coloured humour
Be a Punchinello and laugh, Clown, laugh!

Regards,

A

Would it be any help if I told you that the singer was a Scot, who sang under the name of Monte Rey, some of the old Catters from the UK may have heard of him.

The Monte Rey recording of the song is available: The Unforgettable Monte Rey.

(Strangely, when I saw other tracks I thought the Dean Martin song might have been it, but then I see it's been posted and rejected above!).

You can hear Monte Rey sing PUNCHINELLO on this web site:


PUNCHINELLO*
Words and music by Chet Forrest and Bob Wright (1939)
Featured in the Tony Martin/Rita Hayworth film "Music In My Heart" (1940)**
As sung by Monte Rey.

Oh, Punchinello,
Don't be a downhearted fellow.
Oh, Punchinello,
Though your heart is breaking in two,
Smile through those teardrops.
Maybe someday she will listen,
And kiss you,
And whisper,
"I miss you; I need you; I do."
Punchinello,
Funny fellow,
Your funny old dream may come true.

Punchinello, what's the matter?
Surely this is idle chatter.
All this talk of love has got you down.
Must be a poor Pagliacci.
Crying only makes you splotchy.
You're a funny figure of a clown.
My fine funny friend, begone.
Remember the show must go on,
And go on.

REPEAT FIRST PART
