Caro Mio Ben


Sung by Luciano Pavarotti, Italian tenor

Caro Mio Ben (My Dear Beloved)
Music by Giuseppe Giordani
English line-by-line translation © John Glenn Paton

Caro mio ben, credimi almen
My dear beloved, believe me at least
Senza di te, languisce il cor
without you, my heart languishes

Il tuo fedel, sospira ognor
Your faithful one, always sighs
Cessa, crudel, tanto rigor!
cease, cruel one, so much punishment!

Caro mio ben, credimi almen
My dear beloved, believe me at least
Senza di te languisce il cor
without you, my heart languishes
