Vuoi tu, Rosina

Language: Italian (Italiano)

(nel tempo del ritornello egli cerca grattandosi la testa,
e poi canta, facendo le castagnette colle dita, e ballando sui
ginocchi, come fanno i vecchi)

Vuoi tu, Rosina,  
far compra fina
d'un bello sposo,
che merti, o cara,
tutto l'amore?
Tirsi non sono,
ma ancor son buono,
ed io ti giuro,
quando fa scuro
han tutti i gatti
un sol colore:
dunque, mia cara bella,
prendi questo mio core.
