TEXT: O mio babbino caro, mi piace bello, o bello; Vo’andar in Porta Rosa a comperar l’anello. Si, si, ci voglio andare, ee l’amassi indarno, Andrei sul Ponte Vecchio, ma per buttari in Arno! Mi struggo e mi tormento!O Dio! Vorrei morir! Babbo, pieta! Pieta!
TRANSLATION: Oh, my dear Daddy, he pleases me; he is handsome! I was to go to the Porta Rosa to buy the ring! Yes, I want to go there, and if I should love him in vain, I would go to the Ponte Vecchio and throw myself into the Arno! I am feeling tortured and tormented! Oh, God, I want to die! Daddy have pity! Please! COPYRIGHT: This video is for educational purposes.
