No, non è morto il figlio tuo;
Oh, non è morto, non è morto.
Se n'è andato pel giardino:
Ha raccolto tante rose;
Se n'è inghirlandata la fronte:
Ed ora dorme al loro dolce odore.

No, your son is not dead
Language: English  after the Italian (Italiano) 
No, your son is not dead,
he is not dead, not dead.
He has gone off through the garden.
He has picked copious roses,
with which his brow is now adorned.
And now he sleeps amidst their sweet aroma.
