Cavalleria Rusticana “Voi lo sapete, o mamma”

O mother, you know 
that before he became a soldier 
Turiddu had sworn 
eternal faith to Lola. 
On his return, he found her married, 
and he sought, with a new love, 
to quell the flame 
which burned in his heart: 
He loved me, I loved him. 
But she, envious of my delight, 
forgetting her husband, 
burned with jealousy … 
she stole him from me … 
I am left disgraced; 
Lola and Turiddu are lovers, 
and I am left to weep.
