O Mio Babbino Caro Lyrics in Italian, with English Translation
Music by Giacomo Puccini
Libretto by Giovacchino Forzano
from the opera Gianni Schicchi

O mio babbino caro
Oh my dear papa
Mi piace, è bello, bello
I like him, he is handsome, handsome
Vo’ andare in Porta Rossa
I want to go to Porta Rossa
a comperar l’anello!
to buy the ring!
Sì, sì, ci voglio andare!
Yes, yes, I want to go there!
e se l’amassi indarno,
And if my love were in vain,
andrei sul Ponte Vecchio,
I would go to the Ponte Vecchio
ma per buttarmi in Arno!
and throw myself in the Arno!
Mi struggo e mi tormento!
I am being consumed and I am tormented!
O Dio, vorrei morir!
Oh God, I’d want to die!
Babbo, pietà, pietà!
Papa, have pity, have pity!
Babbo, pietà, pietà!
Papa, have pity, have pity!
