Occhi di fata

Language: Italian

O begl'occhi di fata,
o begl'occhi stranissimi e profondi...
Voi m'avete rubata
la pace della prima gioventù.

Bella signora dai capelli biondi
per la mia giovinezza che v'ho data
mi darete di più.

O sì, voi mi darete
dei vostri baci la febbre e l'ardore!
Trepidante sarete
tra le mie bracie aperte...
Tra le mie bracie aperte
e sul mio cor.

Della mia gioventù
prendete il fiore.
Del mio giovine sangue
l'ardore prendete.
Ma datemi l'amor,
 ma datemi l'amor!

Gentle Reminder
This is a personal project that I began in 1995. I receive no salary for my full-time work on it, and aside from ad revenue and copyright fees, the Archive is supported financially by fewer than 0.02% of our visitors. So if you found the information here useful, please consider making a donation. Your gift is greatly appreciated.
