Original text and translations

Italian.png Italian text

 Sta notte me sonnai,
 sta notte me sonnai na vidovella.
 parea che me venisse a resueliare.
 con dir che si voleva,
 con dir che si voleva confessare.

English.png English translation

As I dozed off tonight,
 tonight sleeping with the little widow.
 I thought he was coming to replace me.
 saying that he wanted,
 saying he wanted to confess.
