Dimmi, amor

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Dimmi amor, dimmi che fa 
La mia cara libertà?
Da che andò, come sai tu,
Alegarsi ad un bel crine,
Questo cor pien di ruine
Non l'ha poi rivista più!
Dimmi amor, dimmi che fa 
La mia cara libertà?

Un pensier il cor mandò
A trovarla in sue catene;
Ma per crescer le mie pene 
Il pensier mai non tornò!
Dimmi amor, dimmi che fa 
La mia cara libertà?
Dimmi amor, dimmi che fa 
La mia cara libertà?
