Original text and translations

- Vostra moglie fu baciata.
Ch'era il solo vostro ben.
Io non so se lo sapete,
E fu cento volte almen.

- Quando? Dove? Non tacete!
Lacerarmi sento il sen.

English.png English translation

- Your wife was kissed,
She, who was your only love.
I don't know if you knew it,
And it was a hundred times, at least.

- When? Where? Don't hide anything from me!
I feel my heart tear and rip.
