Return to me, oh my dear I'm so lonely.
Hurry back, hurry back, oh my love I'm yours.
Return to me, for my heart wants you only.
Hurry home, hurry home, won't you please hurry home to my heart?
My darling, if I've hurt you I'm sorry. Forgive me, and please say you'll be mine.
Return to me, come back belemia. Hurry back, hurry home, to my arms to my lips to my heart.
Oh my darling. If I've hurt you I'm sorry. Forgive me, and please say you'll be mine.
Return to me, caramia di amor, so lo to, so lo to, so lo to, mi amor.
