Baciatemi cor mio

Available translation(s): GER
Baciatemi cor mio
che con sì dolce aita
mi manterrete in vita
et io senza misura
i baci renderovvi con l'usura.
Ma se voi me negate quest' ancora
mostrate ben di farlo perch'io mora.

Küsse mich, oh mein Herz
Language: German (Deutsch)  after the Italian (Italiano) 
Küsse mich, oh mein Herz.
Mit solch süßer Hilfe wirst
Du mich am Leben halten,
und ich werde alle Küsse
ohne Maß zurückgeben.
Aber wenn Du Dich immer noch weigerst
zeigst Du, daß Du so tust, damit ich sterbe.
