Such lame lyrics, paired with such beautiful music!

I love the song “O mio babbino caro”. Every time I hear it is get goose bumps. So I though I would look up the lyrics in english.  What I found made me laugh! First listen to the music then read the lyrics. Enjoy!

Oh my dear father,
I like him, he is very handsome.
I want to go to Porta Rossa
to buy the ring!
Yes, yes, I want to go there!
And if my love were in vain,
I would go to Ponte Vecchio
and throw myself in the Arno!
I am pining and I am tormented,
Oh God! I would want to die!
Daddy, have mercy, have mercy!
Daddy, have mercy, have mercy!
