Perché chinati gli occhi

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Perché chinati gli occhi
  Hai sempre innanzi a me?
  Poco amor, 
  Poco ardor
  Per me, bella tu senti nel cor.

Innalza gli occhi al cielo,
  Lieta verderti io vo',
  E l'ardor
  E l'amor
  Io vo' leggere nel tuo cor.

Ma forse del tuo gelo
  Un dì trionferò,
  Tanto ardor,
  Tanto amor
  M'hai tu acceso, fanciulla, nel cor.
