Io v‘ho servita,
Dolce mia vita,
Molti e molt’anni
Con gravi affanni,
E un altro poi
Fruirà voi.
Ahimè ch’io morirò,
Se più non vi vedrò.

German.png German translation

Ich habe euch gedient,
mein süßes Leben,
viele, viele Jahre
mit schwerem Verdruss,
und nun wird ein anderer
euch genießen.
Ach, ich werde sterben,
wenn ich euch nicht mehr sehe.

Translation by Gerhard Weydt

I have served you,
my sweet life,
many, many years
with heavy grief,
and now another one
will enjoy you.
Alas, I will die,
if I don’t see you any longer.

Translation by Gerhard Weydt

Je vous ai servi,
ma douce vie,
beaucoup d’années
avec des chagrins graves,
et maintenant un autre
jouira de vous.
Hélas, je mourrai,
si je ne peux plus vous voir.

Translation by Gerhard Weydt
