Alma del core

Language: Italian

 Alma del core,
 Spirto dell'alma,
 Sempre costante t'adorerò!
 Sarò contento
 Nel mio tormento
 Se quel bel labbro baciar potrò.

 Dolce mia vita,
 Cor del mio seno,
 Sempre quest'alma t'adorerà.
 Al tuo splendore
 Questo mio core
 Clizia fedele s'aggirerà.

Soul of my heart

Language: English

Soul of my heart,
Spirit of my soul,
Always contantly will I adore you!
I will be contented
In my torment
If only I could kiss that beautiful lip.

Sweet is my life,
Heart of my breast,
Always this soul will I adore.
To your splendor
This my heart
Clizia faithful will go around.
