 Udite, lagrimosi
 Spirti d'Averno, udite
 Nova sorte di pena e di tormento;
 Mirate crudo affetto
 In sembiante pietoso:

 La mia donna, crudel piú del' inferno,
 Perch'una sola morte
 Non può far satia la sua ingorda voglia
 E la mia vita è quasi
 Una perpetua morte,
 Mi comanda ch'i' viva
 Perché la vita mia,
 Di mille morti il dí ricetto sia.
