Italian.png Italian text

Asciugate i begli occhi,
Deh, cor mio, non piangete
Se lontano da voi gir mi vedete!
Ahi, che pianger debb'io misero e solo,
Ché partendo da voi m'uccide il duolo.

English.png English translation

Dry those lovely eyes,
alas, my beloved, do not weep
if you see me wandering far away from you.
For, ah, I must weep alone and in misery,
because as I part from you, I suffer such bitter pain that my days are numbered.

Translation by Mick Swithinbank
