Original text and translations

Italian.png Italian text

Amatemi, ben mio,
Che se d’amarmi,
dolce vita mia,
Non vi mostrate pia,
Viverò sconsolato,
Sol per amarvi,
Non essendo amato.

French.png French translation

Aimez-moi, mon bien,
Car si, de m'aimer, ma douce vie,
Vous ne vous montrez pas généreuse,
Je vivrai inconsolable,
N'aimant que vous
Sans être aimé.
