Ascoltar no, non ti voglio
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Available translation(s): ENG
Ascoltar no, non ti voglio,  
folle orgoglio:
lascia l'amante sen;
nemico del mio ben,
fuggi dall'alma.

Non altri su 'l mio cor
che il mio diletto amor
porti la palma.

Foolish pride
Language: English  after the Italian (Italiano) 
Foolish pride,
I do not wish to listen to you.
Leave my loving heart alone.
Enemy of my beloved, 
flee far from my soul.

Let nothing else wield the palm frond
over my heart
than the delight of my love.
