Italian.png Italian text

Cor mio, deh, non piangete
Ch’altra pena non sento altro martire
Che’l veder voi, voi languir del mio languire.

Dunque non m’offendete
Se sanar mi volete
Che quell’affetto che pietà chiamate
Se è dispietato a voi non è pietate.

English.png English translation

My heart, ah, do not weep,
for I feel no other sorrow, no other pain,
than to see you languish for my frailty.

Then do me no harm
if to cure me you strive,
for that feeling you call pity
if it hurts you mercilessly, is not kindness.
