Original text and translations
Sta notte me sonnai,
sta notte me sonnai na vidovella.
parea che me venisse a resueliare.
con dir che si voleva,
con dir che si voleva confessare.
As I dozed off tonight,
tonight sleeping with the little widow.
I thought he was coming to replace me.
saying that he wanted,
saying he wanted to confess.
