Francesco Paolo Tosti / Giovanni Alfredo Cesareo

Vola, o serenata: La mia diletta è sola,
E, con la bella testa abbandonata,
Posa tra le lenzuola:
O serenata, vola. O serenata, vola.
Splende pura la luna,
L'ale il silenzio stende,
E dietro I veni dell'alcova
Bruna la lampada s'accende.
Pure la luna splende.
Pure la luna splende.
Vola, o serenata,
Vola, o serenata, vola.
Ah! là. Ah! là.

Vola, o serenata: La mia diletta è sola,
Ma sorridendo ancor mezzo assonnata,
Torna fra le lenzuola:
O serenata, vola. O serenata, vola.
L'onda sogna su ‘l lido,
E ‘l vento su la fronda;
E a' baci miei ricusa ancore un nido
La mia signora bionda.
Sogna su ‘l lido l'onda.
Sogna su ‘l lido l'onda.
Vola, o serenata,
Vola, o serenata, vola.
Ah! là. Ah! là.

Translation:

Fly, o serenade: My delight is alone,
And, with her beautiful abandoned head,
Fly between her sheets:
O serenade, fly. O serenade, fly.
The moon shines brightly,
Silence extends it's wings,
And behind the shadows of the dark
Alcove the lamp burns.
The moon shines brightly.
The moon shines brightly.
Fly, o serenade,
Fly, o serenade, fly.
Ah! there. Ah! there.

Fly, o serenade: My delight is alone,
But, still smiling half muted,
Return between her sheets:
O serenade , fly. O serenade, fly.
The wave dreams on the shore,
And the wind on the branch;
And my blonde lady still denies
A place for my kisses.
The wave dreams on the shore.
The wave dreams on the shore.
Fly, o serenade,
Fly, o serenade, fly.
