Tu me ne puoi ben dire

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Ardo ogn'hor mi struggo in pene
idolatro le catene
e adoro la cagion del mio morire.
Tutto è ver ma vo servire.
Tu me ne puoi ben dire.
Senti Lilla inesorabile
mostro di crudeltà
com' io di fedeltà.
Arma'l ciglio e scocca il guardo
piaga'l sen da morte
all'alma t'adorerò
ne muterò
con te fede o costanza
se ben si strugge amor
senza speranza.
Tutto è ver ma vo servire.
Tu me ne puoi ben dire.
