La serenata

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Vola, o serenata:
La mia diletta è sola,
e, con la bella testa abbandonata,
posa tra le lenzuola: 
O serenata, vola.
O serenata, vola.

Splende Pura la luna, 
l'ale il silenzio stende,
e dietro i veni dell'alcova 
bruna la lampada s'accende. 
Pure la luna splende. 
Pure la luna splende.

Vola, o serenata,
Vola, o serenata, vola. 
Ah! là. Ah! là.

Vola, o serenata:
La mia diletta è sola,
ma sorridendo ancor mezzo assonnata,
torna fra le lenzuola: 
O serenata, vola.
O serenata, vola.

L'onda sogna su 'l lido,
e 'l vento su la fronda;
e a' baci miei ricusa ancore un nido 
la mia signora bionda.
Sogna su 'l lido l'onda.
Sogna su 'l lido l'onda.

Vola, o serenata,
Vola, o serenata, vola. 
Ah! là. Ah! là.

La serenata

Language: Spanish (Español) after the Italian (Italiano)

Vuela, oh serenata:
mi amada está sola y
con la bella cabeza abandonada
desacansa entre las sábanas
Oh serenata, vuela
Oh serenata, vuela

Resplancdece pura la luna
sus alas el silencio extiende
y tras las cortinas de su alcoba
una lámpara se enciende,
pura resplandece la luna
pura resplandece la luna

Vuela, oh serenata
vuela, oh serenata, vuela
Ah, allá, ah, allá

Vuela, oh serenata:
mi anada está sola 
mas sonriendo, aún medio dormida
se da vuelta entre las sábanas
Oh serenata, vuela
Oh serenata, vuela

La ola sueña sobre la playa
y el viento sobre la rama
y a mis besos les niega un nido
mi rubia señora.
Sueñan sobre la playa las olas 
Sueñan sobre la playa las olas

Vuela, oh serenata
Vuela, oh serenata, vuela
Ah, allá, ah, allá
