(the title is not o mio bambino caro)
Listen to this
English Translation

O my precious Daddy
I love him, he is so handsome
I want to go to Porta Rossa
To buy a ring

Yes, yes I want to go there
And if my love were in vain
I would go to Ponte Vecchio
But to throw myself into the Arno

I am worrying and suffering torments
Oh, God I would rather die.

Daddy, have pity, have pity.
Daddy, have pity, have pity.
O Mio Babbino Caro - Lyrics in Italian

O mio babbino caro
Mi piace, e bello bello
Vo'andare in Porta Rossa
A comperar l'anello

Si, si, ci volgi andare
E se l'amassi indarno
Andrei sul Ponte Vecchio
Ma per buttarmi in Arno

Mi struggo e mi tormento
O, Dio vorrei morir.

Babbo, pieta, pieta.
Babbo, pieta, pieta.
