Io ti vorria contar la pena mia
Ma non ce bastariano mille mesi
Ti dico: voi me bene?
Mi rispondi: sì;
Dico: fa questo mò!
Ti dici: non si può!

I'd like to tell you of my sufferings,
but a thousand months would not be enough.
I ask, 'Do you love me?'
You answer, 'Yes.'
I say, 'Prove it then!'
You say, 'That can't be done!'
