Original text and translations

Italian.png Italian text

Ardo per voi, lanquisco, piango ogn' hor' e sospiro.
E intorno à voi bell' Argo mio m'agiro.
Ma pur, oime, non vede.
Vostro sguardo la face, che m'incende e mi sface.
Non vede il piant' oime, non la mia fede.
Ò, ingiustitia d'amore.
Haver cent'occhi et esser Talpa al core.

Dutch.png Dutch translation

Ik brand voor jou, ik kwijn en huil elk uur en zucht.
En loop om jou heen, mijn mooie Argo.
Maar toch, o wee, jij ziet mij niet.
De blik op je gezicht zet me in vuur en vlam en vernietigt mij.
Jij ziet de traan niet, o wee, noch mijn trouw.
O, onrechtvaardigheid van liefde,
Heb honderd ogen en kruip (als een mol) in mijn hart.

English.png English translation

I burn for you, I languish and cry and sigh every hour.
And walk around you, my beautiful Argo.
But still, oh woe, you don't see me.
The look on your face sets me on fire and destroys me.
You don't see the tear, oh woe, nor my faithfulness.
Oh, injustice of love,
Have a hundred eyes and dig (like a mole) in my heart.
