Canzonetta: Che ciascun per te sospiri

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Che ciascun per te sospiri,
bella Nice, io son contento; 
ma per altri, oh Dio! pavento 
che tu impari a sospirar.
Un bel cor da chi l'adora 
so che ognor non si difende: 
so che spesso s'innamora 
chi pretende innamorar.

Que chacun pour toi soupire

Language: French (Français) after the Italian (Italiano)

Que chacun pour toi soupire,
Belle Nice, j’en suis content ;
Mais pour d’autres, mon Dieu ! je crains
Que tu n’apprennes à soupirer.

Un beau cœur, de qui l’adore,
Ne peut toujours se défendre, je le sais :
Je sais que souvent tombe amoureux
Qui prétend rendre amoureux.
