In questa tomba oscura
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Available translation(s): DUT ENG FRE IRI SPA
In questa tomba oscura
   Lasciami riposar;
Quando vivevo, ingrata,
   Dovevi a me pensar.

Lascia che l'ombre ignude
  Godansi pace almen
E non, e non bagnar mie ceneri
  D'inutile velen.

En esta tumba oscura déjame reposar
Language: Spanish (Español)  after the Italian (Italiano) 
En esta tumba oscura 
déjame reposar
Cuando estaba vivo, ingrata,
debías haber pensado en mí

Deja al menos que los fantasmas desnudos
disfruten su paz
Y no bañes mis cenizas 
de inútil veneno.
