Dimmi, ben mio, che m'ami,
Dimmi che mia tu sei.

Tu m'apri il paradiso
Di mia felicità!

Say, my love, you love me
Language: English  after the Italian (Italiano) 
Say, my love, you love me,
Say that you are mine
And I will not envy
The gods their power divine.
With one single look from you,
My dear, with just one smile
You will show me paradise,
Blissful content the while.
