I tuoi sdegni, e i tuoi lamenti
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Available translation(s): ENG
I tuoi sdegni, e i tuoi lamenti  
io non curo, e non ascolto;
altro laccio ho al core avvolto,
non v'è speme più per te.
Se dar fine ai tuoi tormenti,
se temprar vuoi le tue doglie,
puoi cangiar pensieri, e voglie
puoi scordarti al fin di me.

I do not heed your scorn or your laments
Language: English  after the Italian (Italiano) 
I do not heed your scorn or your laments,
and I refuse to listen to them.
Around my heart, I have another chain
tightly wrapped.
There is no more hope for you.

If you wish to end your torments 
and quench your suffering,
you may change your thoughts
and your desires:
forget about me.
