Lyrics

Deh, vieni alla finestra, o mio tesoro,
deh, vieni a consolar il pianto mio.
Se neghi a me di dar qualche ristoro,
davanti agli occhi tuoi morir vogl’io.

Tu ch’hai la bocca dolce più che il miele,
tu che il zucchero porti in mezzo al core,
non esser, gioia mia, con me crudele,
lasciati almen veder, mio bell’amore!

Translation

Come to the window, my treasure,
come to console my lament.
If you deny me some relief,
I want to die before your eyes!

You whose mouth is sweeter than honey,
you whose heart cradles sweet desires!
Do not, my beloved, be cruel to me!
At least let me see you, my loved one!
