 Tu sei la causa,
  dela morte mia,
  Et facialo lo cielo con la terra
  cagnazza pierra nat' in barbaria
  Tu sei la causa dela morte mia,
  dela morte mia.

You are the cause, of my death,
  And you face the sky and the earth
  bitching ground born of barbarism
  You are the cause of my death,
  of my death.
