Nessun dorma, nessun dorma
Tu pure, o principessa
Nella tua fredda stanza guardi le stelle

Che tremano d'amore e di speranza

Ma il mio mistero e' chiuso in me
Il nome mio nessun sapra' no, no
Sulla tua bocca lo diro'
Quando La luce splendera'
Ed il mio bacio sciogliera' il silenzio
Che ti fa mia

Dilegua, o notte
Tramontate, stelle
Tramontate, stelle
All'alba vincero'

English translation of Italian lyrics:

No one sleeps, no one sleeps
Even you, oh princess
In your cold room watch the stars

That tremble with love and with hope

But my secret is hidden within me
My name no one shall know, no, no
On your mouth I will speak it
When the light shines
And my kiss will dissolve the silence
That makes you mine

Vanish, oh night
Set, stars
Set, stars
At daybreak, I shall Conquer
I shall conquer
I shall conquer

(This song, written by Puccini, is performed by Luciano Pavarotti and a host of others, including Bono, the Edge, Brian Eno, Dolors O'Riordan, Meat Loaf, Michael Bolton, Simon Le Bon, Zuccherro, Jovanotti, and Nenad Bach, and can be found on the album Pavarotti and Friends: Together for the Children of Bosnia)
