Original text and translations

Italian.png Italian text

Son questi i crespi crini e questo il viso
Ond'io rimango ucciso,
Deh, dimelo ben mio,
Che questo sol desio.

Questi son gl'occhi che mirand'io fiso,
Tutto restal conquiso,
Deh dimelo ...

Questa la bocca, è questo il dolce riso,
Ch'allegra il paradiso,
Deh, dimelo ...

Ma se quest'è che non mi par bugia,
Godianci anima mia
Et l'alma al duolo avezza,
Mora de la dolcezza.

English.png English translation

This is the curly hair and this is the face
From which I am killed,
Alas, tell me my love,
That I wish only this.
