Non sempre invendicata
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Available translation(s): FRE
Non sempre invendicata
Io resterò così,
Tiranno, dispietata
Ha da finir, sì, sì,
L’affanno mio.

Vi tolga ogni speranza
L’altera mia costanza
Che l’ira vincerà
Del fato rio.

Sans vengeance à jamais
Language: French (Français)  after the Italian (Italiano) 
Sans vengeance à jamais
Je ne resterai pas,
Despote, cruelle,
Il va finir, oui, oui,
Mon tourment.

Tout espoir vous sera ôté
Par ma noble constance,
Car ma colère vaincra 
Le sort coupable.
