Come obliar potrei

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Che novità, che stravaganza è questa!  
Di qual confusïon m'empì la testa
di mio padre il linguaggio oscuro e strano?
Il conte Alberto è re?... vuole sposarmi?
Non vi sarebbe sotto qualche trappola
per ingannare me, e mio padre? e poi
come potrei Sandrino mio tradire?
Tradirlo! ah no... mi sentirei morire.
Come obliar potrei  
il mio primiero amor?
Ah ch'io mi morirei
di pena e di dolor.
Il caro amato oggetto
sveller non so dal cor.
E al mio primiero affetto
sarò costante ognor.
