Song Text

O gelosia d’amanti, horribil freno
Che in un punto mi tiri e tien si forte;
O sorella di le empia et cruda morte,
Che con tua vista turbi il ciel sereno;

O serpente nascosto in dolci seno
Che con tue voglie mie speranze hai morte;
Tra felice successi, adversa sorte;
Tra soavi vivande aspro veneno.

Di qual boca infernal nel mondo uscisti,
O crudel mostro, O pesti dei mortali,
Per far gli giorni miei si oscuri e tristi?

Tornati in giu, non aumentar miei mali;
Infelice paura ad quid venisti?
Hor non bastaba amor con li suoi strali?

O jealousy of lovers, horrid restraint
which, in an instant, pulls me and holds me firm.
O sister of impious and cruel death who,
upon seeing you, arouses the serene skies.

O serpent hidden in a sweet breast
Who at your wish has killed my hopes;
Between happy events, adverse fate,
In delicate food, bitter poison.

From what infernal mouth did you spring,
O cruel monster, o plague of mortals,
To make my days so dark and sad?

Retreat at once, do not increase my woes;
Unhappy fear, why did you come,
Was Love not enough with his arrows?
