Con male nuove, non si può cantare

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Questa, questa è la nuova
ch'io v'ho da dire amanti,
ch'amando non si trova
altro che pene e pianti.
Ben il mio cor il prova
e volete ch'io canti.
Senta, senta chi brama
la canzonetta udire:
non s'ama, no, non s'ama
senza pena e martire.
A chi m'invita e chiama
altro non ho che dire.
Deh, cantar non mi fate,
che la canzon peggiora!
Quante bevande ingrate
fugge chi s'innamora!
Ha poca caritate
chi vuol ch'io canti ancora.
