Questa Maledetta Porta

Version 1: recreated by R. B. Craswell

Questa maledetta porta si blòcca.
Questa maledetta porta si blòcca comunque diàvolo lo faccio.
Cíè scritto 'tirare', e io sto tirando.
Forse dovrebbe esserci scritto 'spingere'?

Loose translation

This damn door sticks.
This damn door sticks no matter what the hell I do.
Itís marked "pull", and indeed I am pulling.
Perhaps it should be marked "push"?

Please note that this is an old recording, so the quality is poor. Also, although it's presumably a soprano aria, for some reason it's performed here by an over-the-hill baritone.
