“Lascia Ch’io Pianga”

Lascia ch’io pianga la cruda sorte,
E che sospiri la libertà!
E che sospiri, e che sospiri la libertà!
Lascia ch’io pianga la cruda sorte,
E che sospiri la libertà!

Lascia ch’io pianga la cruda sorte,
E che sospiri la libertà!
E che sospiri, e che sospiri la libertà!
Lascia ch’io pianga la cruda sorte,
E che sospiri la libertà!

English translation:

Let me weep over my cruel fate
And that I long for freedom!
And that I long, and that I long for freedom!
Let me weep over my cruel fate
And that I long for freedom!

Let me weep over my cruel fate
And that I long for freedom!
And that I long, and that I long for freedom!
Let me weep over my cruel fate
And that I long for freedom!
