Nel cor piu non mi sento
Brillar la gioventu
cagion del mio tormento
amor sei colpa tu
Mi pizzichi, mi stuzzichi
mi pungichi, mi mastichi
che cosa e questo ahime
pieta, pieta, pieta
amore e un certo che
che disperar mi fa.

English.png English translation

Why feels my heart so dormant
No fire of youth divine?
Thou cause of all my torment
O Love, the fault is thine!
He teases me, he pinches me
He squeezes me, he wrenches me
What tortures I must bear!
Have done, Have done, Have done!
Thou, Love, art surely one
Will drive me to despair!
