Melodie d'amour, take this song to my lover
Shoo shoo little bird, go and find my love
($) Melodie d'amour, serenade at her window
Shoo shoo little bird [sing my song of/*tell her of my] love! (fine)
Oh, tell her I will wait, if she names a date
Tell her that I care more than I can bear.
For when we are apart, how it hurts my heart
So fly, oh fly away, and say that I hope and pray
this lovers' melody will bring her back to me.
Oh, tell her how I yearn long for her return
Say I miss her so, more than she could know.
dal $egno al fine*
