(G Am Dm7 D# G, 7, E7 Am Cm G D7 (repeat Eb7), Gm Eb7 D)

D7    G       C          D7 G
Ogni sera di sotto al mio balcone                         Underneath my balcony every evening
          Em         A7    D7
Sento cantar una canzon d'amore                                I hear a love-song,
    G       C         D7    G
Pi volte la ripete un bel garzone                        Repeated several times by a handsome boy
             C G          C G
E battere mi sento forte il cuore,                        And it makes my heart beat faster
            A7             D (7) (G7?)
E batere mi sento forte il cor

    D7       G    G+         Am
Oh, quanto dolce quella melodia                        O how sweet is that melody!
            D7                  Em G
Oh, come bella, quanto m'e gradita                        O how pretty, how I love to hear it!
          B         F#7          B
Ch'io la canti non vuol la mamma mia                        My mother will not let me sing it,
          Eb    Bb7            Eb
Vorrei saper perch me l'h proibita?                        I don't know why she would forbid me,
7       Ab    B7          Eb        
Ella non c' ed io la v cantar                                Now that she is out I am going to sing
    A            Eb         Bb7 Eb (Em A7 G7)
La frase che m'h fatto palpitare:                        The song that I found so exciting.

          C                   Dm
Vorrei bacciar i tuoi capelli neri                        I'd like to kiss your raven hair
          G7    E7                C
Le labbra tue e gli occhi tuopi severi                        Your lips and your solemn eyes;
Vorrei morir con te algel di Dio,                        I would want to die with you, O heavenly angel,
Oh, 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 bacciar i tuoi capelli neri
Le labbra tue e gli occhi tuoi severi,
             C#    A7      
Stringimi, o cara, stringimi al mio                        Clasp me, darling, clasp me to your heart,
Dm    Fm       C       G7          C
Cuore fammi provar l'ebbrezza dell'amor                        Let me feel the ecstasy of love!

[Gastaldon, canta original Gino Bechi]
