Willst du die Meine sein, biet' ich dir Kronen,

Marquese del Orco
Language: English  after the German (Deutsch) 
 If you wish to be mine, I offer you a crown,
 you shall sit at my side as a princess!
 If you want to meet with me and be my own,
 send to me the ring from your heart-finger,
 I await your messenger about midnight.
