"Forbidden Music" - composed by Stanislao Gastaldon.


Ogni sera di sotto al mio balcone
Underneath my balcony every evening

Sento cantar una canzone d'amore,
I hear a love-song,

Più volte la ripete un bel garzone
Repeated several times by a handsome young man

E battere mi sento forte il core,
And it makes my heart beat faster.

Oh quanto è dolce quella melodia!
O how sweet is that melody!

Oh com' è bella, quanto m' è gradita!
O how pretty, how I love to hear it!

Ch'io la canti non vuol la mamma mia:
My mother will not let me sing it,

Vorrei saper perché me l'ha proibita?
Though why she would forbid me, I don't know.

Ella non c'è ed io la vo' cantare
Now that she is out I am going to sing

La frase che m'ha fatto palpitare:
The song that I found so exciting.

Vorrei baciare i toui capelli neri,
I'd like to kiss your raven hair,

Le labbra tue e gli occhi tuoi severi,
Your lips and your solemn eyes;

Vorrei morir con te, angel di Dio,
I would want to die with you, O heavenly angel,

O bella innamorata tesor mio.
My beautiful beloved, precious jewel.

Qui sotto il vidi ieri a passeggiare,
Yesterday I saw him walking by,

E lo sentiva al solito cantar:
And heard him sing as he always does:

Vorrei baciare i tuoi capelli neri,
I'd like to kiss your raven hair,

Le labbra tue e gli occhi toui severi!
Your lips and your solemn eyes!

Stringimi, o cara, stringimi al tuo core,
Clasp me, darling, clasp me to your heart,

Fammi provar l'ebbrezza dell'amor.
Let me feel the ecstasy of love!
