Occhi di fata
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!
tra le mie bracie aperte...
Tra le mie bracie aperte
e sul mio cor.
Della mia gioventù
prendete il fiore.
Del mio giovine sangue
Ma datemi l'amor,
ma datemi l'amor!

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 was supported financially last year by fewer than 0.02%
of our visitors.
