Involarmi il mio tesoro?
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Available translation(s): ENG
Involarmi il mio tesoro?
Ah dov’è quest’alma ardita?
Ha da togliermi la vita
chi vuol togliermi il mio ben.
M’avvilisce in queste spoglie
il poter di due pupille;
ma lo so ch’io sono Achille
e mi sento Achille in sen.
