A che far le superbette

Language: Italian (Italiano)

A che far le superbette  
quando amor ci batte il core?
È compagna dell'amore
nelle donne la viltà.
Quando poi vediam sommesso
un meschino accanto a noi,
allor poi, così si dice,
«ciò non devo»... «ciò non lice».
Scosta... vieni... corri va'.
E qual misero conviene
che sopporta le sue pene
con pazienza, ed umiltà.
