-TRE GIORNI SON CHE NINA-
Tre giorni son che Nina is one of the best-known arias of the Italian Baroque. The lyrics refer to the concern of a man for his beloved Nina, who is in bed seriously ill. He wants to wake her up, but she might never make it..
Tre giorni son che Nina, che Nina, che Nina
In letto se ne sta, in letto se ne sta.
Pifferi, timbali, cembali, svegliate mia Ninetta,
Svegliate mia Ninetta, acciò non dorma più.
For three long days my Nina, my Nina, my Nina
Upon her bed has lain, upon her bed has lain
Louder and louder, ye players all, awaken my Ninetta
Awaken my Ninetta, that she may sleep no more.
