Vedi quanto t'adoro ancora, ingrato
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Available translation(s): CAT ENG FRE
Vedi quanto t'adoro ancora, ingrato.
Con un tuo sguardo solo
Mi togli ogni difesa, e mi disarmi.
Ed hai cor di tradirmi? e puoi lasciarmi?

Ah! non lasciarmi, no,
Bell' idol mio:
Di chi mi fiderò,
Se tu m'inganni?

Di vita mancherei
Nel dirti addio;
Chè viver non potrei
Fra tanti affanni.
