Mi piace è bello, bello! (He pleases me, and is so handsome!)

O Mio Babbino Caro

O mio babbino caro
Mi piace è bello, bello!
Vo’andare in Porta Rossa
a comperar l’anello!
Sì, sì, ci voglio andare!
e se l’amassi indarno,
andrei sul Ponte Vecchio,
ma per buttarmi in Arno!
Mi struggo e mi tormento!
O Dio, vorrei morir!
Babbo, pietà, pietà!
Babbo, pietà, pietà!

O my dear papa
He pleases me, and is so handsome!
I want to go to Porta Rossa
to buy the ring!
Yes, yes, I want to go there!
And if my love were in vain,
I would go to the Ponte Vecchio
and throw myself in the Arno!
I am aching, I am tormented!
Oh God, I’d like to die!
Father, have pity, have pity!
Father, have pity, have pity!
