Vecchia zimarra, Colline's aria from La Bohème

Vecchia zimarra, senti, 
io resto al pian, tu ascendere 
il sacro monte or devi. 
Le mie grazie ricevi. 
Mai non curvasti il logoro 
dorso ai ricchi ed ai potenti. 
Passâr nelle tue tasche 
come in antri tranquilli 
filosofi e poeti. 
Ora che i giorni lieti 
fuggîr, ti dico: addio, 
fedele amico mio. 
Addio, addio.
