Translation into Italian by Ugo Berardi (added 2000-02-13). Notes: singable Italian translation
Singable Italian translation of Pour mon pays en serviteur fidele, 
	Laerte's aria from I Act of Hamlet by A. Thomas.

Pour mon pays, en serviteur fidele,	Per servir fedelmente il mio paese
je dois combattre et je dois m'exiler;	devo combatter ed espatriar;
mais,si la moert me frappe   		ma, se un giorno morissi 
	un jour loin d'elle,             	lontan da lei,
votre amitié saura la consoler.        	vostra amistà consolarla saprà.
Elle est mon orgueil et ma vie!   	Lei è l'orgoglio mio e la mia vita!
Auprés d'elle remplacez-moi; 		Vicino a lei mi rimpiazzate;
a votre coeur je la confie,  		al vostro cor io la confido,
je me remetre à votre foi!   		io mi rimetto a vostra fe'
Pret a quitter une soeur bien-aimée,	Lasciando una sorella tanto amata,
c'est à vous seul que je remets le soin	é a voi sol che io confido
de son honneur et de sa renemmée!...	la difesa dell'onor a del buon nome suo!...
Protegez-la lorsque je serai loin,	Serbatela finchè sarò lontan,
ah! protegez-la,protegez-la. 		ah!, serbatela, serbatela.
Elle est mon orgueil et ma vie, etc.  	Lei è l'orgoglio mio e la mia vita, ecc.
