Dicitencello a 'sta cumpagna vosta
C'aggio perduto 'o suonno e 'a fantasia,
C' 'a penzo sempe,
Ch'è tutt' 'a vita mia!
I' nce 'o vvulesse dicere,
Ma nun nce 'o ssaccio dì.

'A voglio bbene,
'A voglio bbene assaje!
Dicitencello vuje
Ca nun mm' 'a scordo maje!
È 'na passione,
Cchiù forte 'e 'na catena,
Ca mme turmenta ll'anema
E nun mme fa campà!

Dicitencello ch'è 'na rosa 'e maggio,
Ch'è assaje cchiù bella 'e 'na jurnata 'e sole!
D' 'a vocca soja,
Cchiù fresca d' 'e vviole,
I' già vulesse sentere
Ch'è 'nnammurata 'e mme.

'A voglio bbene,
'A voglio bbene assaje!
Dicitencello vuje
Ca nun mm' 'a scordo maje!
È 'na passione,
Cchiù forte 'e 'na catena,
Ca mme turmenta ll'anema
E nun mme fa campà!

'Na lacrema lucente v'è caduta,
Diciteme 'nu poco a che penzate?
Cu 'st'uocchie doce
Vuje sola mme guardate!
Levammoce 'sta maschera,
Dicimmo 'a verità!

Te voglio bbene,
Te voglio bbene assaje!
Sì tu chesta catena
Ca nun se spezza maje!
Suonno gentile,
Suspiro mio carnale,
Te cerco comm'a ll'aria,
Te voglio pe' campà!

Tell it to your female friend
That I've lost a sleep and a peace,
That I always think of her,
That she is all my life!
I would like to tell her about it
But I don't know how to tell it to her.

I love her,
I love her so much!
Tell her about it of you
That I'll never forget her!
This is a passion,
Stronger than a chain,
That torments my soul
And doesn't let me live!

Tell her that she's a rose of May,
That she's more beautiful than a sunny day!
From her mouth,
Fresher than violets,
I would like to hear
That she's also in love with me.

I love her,
I love her so much!
Tell her about it of you
That I'll never forget her!
This is a passion,
Stronger than a chain,
That torments my soul
And doesn't let me live!

A glistening tear slid down from your face,
Just tell me: what are you thinking about?
With such sweet eyes
Only you look at me!
Let's throw this mask off
And let's tell each other the truth!

I love you,
I love so much!
You are this chain
That never breaks up!
Sweet dream,
My breathing,
I need you like the air,
I need you to live!
