Vita mia, perchè mi fuggi
E fuggendo il cor mi struggi?
Tu fai torto a la tua beltà
Meco usando tal crudeltà.

Bene mio, perchè mi dai
Tante pene e tanti guai?
Tu fai…

Ben conosco il tuo desire
Mi vuoi far crudel morire
Tu fai…

Trammi ormai il cor dal petto
Che la vita ho già in dispetto
Tu fai…

Oh my life, why do you escape from me
And escaping you break my heart?
You do wrong to your beauty
If you use me so much cruelty.

Oh my dear, why do you give me
So much pain and so much trouble?
You do wrong…

I know well what you desire
Cruelly you want me to die.
You do wrong…

Take my heart now from my bosom
As I already hate life.
You do wrong…
