Amor dormiglione

Amor dormiglione

Amor, non dormir piĆ¹!
Su, su, svegliati omai
Che mentre dormi tu
Dormon le gioie mie, vegliano i guai
Non esser, non esser, Amor, dappoco!
Strali, strali, foco
Strali, strali, su, su
Foco, foco, su, su!
O pigro o tardo
Tu non hai senso
Amor melenso
Amor codardo!
Ahi quale io resto
Che nel mio ardore
Tu dorma Amore:
Mancava questo!

Love in Slumber

Love sleep no more!
Up, up now you must wake
For while you sleep
My joys sleep also, and troubles are awoken
Love do not, do not fail me!
Arrows, arrows, fire
Arrows, arrows, arise, arise
Fire, fire, arise, arise!
Oh, lazy, sluggish Love
You are nonsensical
Ah, while I languish
In burning passion
You, Love, are sleeping:
And what good is that!
