Canta, canta o mio cor! L'ore che passano
Fugan le gioie e apportano i dolor;
Ogni sorriso si tramuta in lacrime
Ma che c'importa se a noi resta amor?

Canta, canta o mio cor! Canta il delirio
Le visïoni belle, i sogni d'or.
Questo eterno desio che in noi ravvivasi
Questa eterna canzon che mai non muor!

Canta, canta o mio cor! La morte gelida
Le nostre labbra chiuderà... ma ancor
Dopo di noi verranno al sole altr'anime
Che s'ameranno e canteran l'amor!
