Dimmi, ben mio, che m'ami,
Dimmi che mia tu sei.

Cara, con un sorriso
Tu m'apri il paradiso
Di mia felicità!

Dis‑moi, mon amour
Language: French (Français)  after the Italian (Italiano) 
Dis-moi, mon amour, que tu m'aimes,
Dis-moi que tu es mienne,
Et je n'envierai pas les dieux
Pour leur divinité !
Avec un seul de tes regards,
Ma chère, avec un sourire,
Tu m'ouvriras le paradis
De mon bonheur !
