Vedrassi prima senza luce il Sole,
E gireranno in ciel tutte le stelle
Men lucide e men belle;
Che voi, che voi siate da me servita e amata
Donna sovr'ogni donna ingiusta e ingrata.

Rather the sun will be seen without light,
And the stars will turn in the sky
Less shiny and beautiful,
Rather than you'll be served and loved by me
Woman, more than any other unfair and ungrateful!
