O rosa bella, o dolce anima mia;
Non mi lassar morire in cortesia.
Ai lasso mi, ai lasso mi dolente!
Dezo finere per ben servire e lialment amare.
O beautiful rose, O sweet spirit;
Don't let me die from courting you.
O release me, O release me from my lamenting!
Must I meet my end in serving you well and loving so loyally.
