Poi che'l mio Amor v'annoia e che'l lasciarvi,
L'empio destin mi vieta,
Donna, m'ucciderò per non turbarvi.
Vivete dunque lieta.

Since my love annoys you and since to leave you
is forbidden to me by cruel fate,
my Lady, I will kill myself in order not to disturb you.
May you live then in good cheer.
