O mio babbino caro,
Mi piace и bello, bello;
Vo'andare in Porta Rossa
A comperar l'anello!
Sм, sм, 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, pietа, pietа!
Babbo, pietа, pietа!

[English translation:]

Oh dear daddy
I love him, he is so handsome
I want to go to Porta Rossa
To buy the ring
Yes, yes, I mean it
And if my love were in vain
I would go to Ponte Vecchio
And throw myself in the Arno
I fret and suffer torments
Oh God, I would rather die
Daddy, have pity, have pity
