Language: Italian (Italiano)
Caro m’è ’l sonno, e più l’esser di sasso,
mentre che ’l danno e la vergogna dura;
non veder, non sentir m’è gran ventura;
però non mi destar, deh, parla basso.

La nuit parle
Language: French (Français) after the Italian (Italiano)
Le sommeil m'est cher, et plus encore d'être de pierre,
Tant que le préjudice et la honte durent ;
ne pas voir, ne pas entendre, me sont une grande fortune ;
mais ne me réveille pas, je t'en prie, parle bas.
