Bandita sei di Spagna,		You are banned from Spain
ma non da questo cor.		but not from my heart.
Con te del viver mio		My youthful years
fu lieta l' alba ancor:		were happy, with you at my side :
ritorna al suol natìo,		return to the homeland,
ti seguirà il mio cor.		my heart will go with you.

Ricevi estremo pegno, un pegno	Receive a last token,
di tutto il mio favor;		a token of all my favour;
cela l' oltraggio indegno	hide the terrible offence received
onde arrosisco ancor.		for which I am still blushing.
Non dir del pianto mio		Don't tell I was weeping,
del crudo mio dolor;		don't disclose my deepest sorrow;
Ritorna al suol natìo,		return to the homeland,
coi voti del cor, del mio cor.	with my most heartfelt prayers.
