O mio babbino caro

8 November 2009

From the opera Gianni Schicchi by Giacomo Puccini:

O mio babbino caro,
mi piace, è bello, bello.
Vo’ andare in Porta Rossa
a comperar l’anello!
Sì, sì, ci voglio andare!
e se l’amassi indarno,
andarei sul Ponte Vecchio
ma per buttarmi in Arno!
Mi struggo e mi tormento!
O Dio, vorrei morir!
Babbo, pietà, pietà!
Babbo, pietà, pietà!

Performed here by the greatest soprano of the 20th century, Maria Callas.

      Ok. But I need to learn Italian first. And be close enough to France to be able to get back there on a regular basis.
