Lizzy's song is not covered by the FAQ, however. The tune is Voi Che Sapete, from Mozart's Marriage of Figaro , but the words are not the same. We don't know where the words came from, or whether they were made up specially for the production. What I can tell you is that the close-caption version of this scene records the words as these:
"Say , ye, who follow, Love's fleeting spell,
What is this sorrow, naught can expel?"
Hope that helps.
