Alza la bionda testa, e non dormire

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Alza la bionda testa, e non dormire,
Non ti lasciar superar dallo sonno.
Quattro parole, amore, io son per dire,
Che tutte e quattro son di gran bisogno:
La prima ell'è che mi fate morire,
E la seconda, che un gran ben vi voglio:
La terza, che vi sia raccomandata;
L'ultima, che di voi so' innamorata.

Translation(s): GER
