O mio babbino caro
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Available translation(s): ENG
O mio babbino caro, mi piace è bello bello;
vo'andare in Porta Rosa a comperar l'anello!
Sì, sì, ci voglio andare!
E se l'amassi indarno, andrei sul Ponte Vecchio,
ma per buttarmi in Arno!
Mi struggo e mi tormento! O Dio, vorrei morir!
Babbo, pietà, pietà! Babbo, pietà, pietà!
