Non odi consiglio?
Soccorso non vuoi?
È giusto se poi
non trovi pietà.
Chi vede il periglio
né cerca salvarsi
ragion di lagnarsi
del fato non ha.

You do not listen to advice?
Language: English  after the Italian (Italiano) 
You do not listen to advice?
You do not seek help?
It serves you right, then,
that you do not find pity.

Whoever sees danger
and does not seek to save himself
has no reason 
to complain to fate.
