T'intendo, sì, mio cor,
Con tanto palpitar!
So che ti vuoi lagnar,
Che amante sei.

Ah! taci il tuo dolor,
Ah! soffri il tuo martir
Tacilo, tacilo e non tradir
L'affetti miei, l'affetti1 miei!

I hear you well, my heart
Language: English  after the Italian (Italiano) 
I hear you well, my heart,
Beating so very hard,
Expressing your complaint, I know,
That you are now in love.

But, still you pain,
Bear your affliction
Silently, and please don't betray
My desperate affection.
