Sprezzo, audace, il tuo furore, Arturo's aria from I Puritani

Sprezzo, audace, il tuo furore;		I despise, boldly, your furor;
la mortal disfida accetto!          	the deadly challenge I accept!
Sprezzo, audace,it tuo furor, ecc.  	I boldly despise your fury...
Vien, vieni, vieni!     		Come, approach me, come!
Questo ferro nel tuo petto        	This iron in your chest
sino all'elsa io vo' piantar.      	to its hilt I will imbed.
No, non ti tempo, ti sprezzo, audace, 	No, I will not time you, I despise
						you, daringly,
la tua mortale disfida accetto,    	your deadly challenge I accept,
non temo il tuo furor,              	I fear not your fury,
no, non temo il tuo furor,      	no, I do not fear your furor,
non temo, indegno, ti sprezzo      	I fear not, unworthy, I despise you
e non temo il tuo furor.        	and I am not afraid of your anger.
