Original text and translations

Italian.png Italian text

O occhi, manza mia, cigli dorati,
o faccia d'una luna stralucente,
Tienemi mente,
gioia mia bella,
Guardam'un poc'a me, fami contiento.

O bocca come zuccaro impanato,
o canna che specchiare fai la gente,

O cuore, manza mia, perfido cuore.
tu sei la gioia mia, lo mio amore!

English.png English translation

Oh my beloved's eyes, set in gold-blond lashes,
oh face more luminous than the moon,
Keep me in mind,
my lovely treasure,
Look upon me for a little while, and keep me happy.

Oh mouth like sugarloaf,
oh throat, that brings crowds in to suckle,
Keep me…

Oh heart, my beloved, most perfidious of hearts,
you are my treasure, you are my love!
Keep me…

Translation by Campelli
