Maledetto sia l'aspetto

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Maledetto sia l'aspetto
Che m'arde tristo me!
Poich'io sento rio tormento
Poich'io moro ne ristoro
Ha mia fè sol per te.
Maledetto sia l'aspetto
Che m'arde tristo me!

Maledetta la saetta
Ch'impiago ne morro;
Così vuole il mio sole
Così brama chi disama
Quanto può - che farò?
Maledetta la saetta
Ch'impiago ne morro.

Donna ria morte mia
Vuol così chi ferì.
Prende gioco del mio foco;
Vuol ch'io peni, che mi sveni;
Morrò quì, fiero dì;
Donna ria morte mia
Vuol così chi ferì.
