O mio babbino caro - Gianni Schicchi

O my dear sweet father,
I love him, he’s wonderful, wonderful;
I want to go to the Red Gate
to buy the ring!
Yes, yes, I want to go!
And if I've loved him in vain,
I'll go under the Old Bridge,
To throw myself into the Arno!
I fret and torment myself!
O God, I want to die!

 Father, pity, pity!...

Renata Scotto sings this famous aria from Puccini's Gianni Schicchi.
Metropolitan Opera, 1981.
