O Colombina, il tenero fido Arlecchin, Beppe's aria from I Pagliacci

O Colombina, il tenero fido Arlecchin
È a te vicin!
Di te chiamando, e sospirando aspetta il poverin!
La tua faccetta mostrami,
Ch'io vo' baciar senza tardar
La tua boccuccia.
Amor mi cruccia!
E mi sta a tormentar!
O Colombina, schiudimi il finestrin,
Che a te vicin di te chiamando,
E sospirando è il povero Arlecchin!
A te vicin è Arlecchin!
