You can help us modernize! The present website has been online for a very long time and we want to bring it up to date. As of April 20, we are $4,600 away from our goal of $15,000 to fund the project. The fully redesigned site will be better for mobile, easier to read and navigate, and ready for the next decade. Please give today and join dozens of other supporters in making this important renovation possible!

La casa del mi' amor vada in profondo

Language: Italian (Italiano)

La casa del mi' amor vada in profondo,
Un lago d'acqua possa diventare
Dentro ci piova coccole di piombo,
Dentro ci vada un serpente ad alloggiare
E ci vada un serpente avvelenato,
Avveleni il mio amor che m'ha lasciato.
E ci vada un serpente avvelenito,
Avveleni il mio amor che m'ha tradito.

Verschling' der Abgrund meines Liebsten...

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Italian (Italiano)

Verschling' der Abgrund meines Liebsten Hütte,
An ihrer Stelle schäum' ein See zur Stunde.
Bleikugeln soll der Himmel drüber schütten,
Und ein Schlange hause dort im Grunde.
Drin hause eine Schlange gift'ger Art,
  Die ihn vergifte, der mir untreu ward.
Drin hause ein Schlange, giftgeschwollen,
  Und bring' ihm Tod, der mich verraten wollen!
