Available translation(s): FRE
Ad altro laccio
vedersi in braccio,
in un momento,
la dolce amica,
se sia tormento,
per me lo dica
chi lo provò.

Rendi a quel core
la sua catena,
tiranno amore,
ché in tanta pena
viver non so, no! no!

Ad altro laccio
vedersi in braccio,
in un momento,
la dolce amica,
se sia tormento,
per me lo dica
chi lo provò.

Par les bras d'un autre
Language: French (Français)  after the Italian (Italiano) 
Par les bras d'un autre
voir enlacée,
en un instant,
sa douce amie,
est-ce un tourment ?
qu'il me le dise
celui qui l'a éprouvé.

Rends à ce cœur
sa chaîne,
amour tyrannique,
Car dans une telle peine
je ne peux vivre, non ! non !

Par les bras d'un autre
voir enlacée,
en un instant,
sa douce amie,
est-ce un tourment ?
qu'il me le dise
celui qui l'a éprouvé.
