Che cangi tempra
Mai più non spero
Quel cor macchiato
D'infedeltà.

Io dirò sempre
Nel mio pensiero:
"Che m'ha ingannato
M'ingannerà."

A change in temperament
Language: English  after the Italian (Italiano) 
A change in temperament
I no longer hope for
In this heart stained
With unfaithfulness.

I shall always say
In my thoughts:
"Who has betrayed me
Will betray me again."
