Fammi combattere, Orlando's aria from Orlando

Fammi combattere          Let me fight
mostri e tifei,           against any monster,
nuovi trofei              if you want
se vuoi dal mio valor.    new trophies by my braveness.
Muraglie abbattere        Let me throw walls down,
disfar incanti,           destroy enchantments,    
se vuoi ch'io vanti       if you want me to boast 
darti prove d'amor.       of giving you proof of love.
