Basta così, v'ho inteso

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Basta così, v'ho inteso. 
Ma voi non ci sete 
Che dentro la rete 
Non voglio esser preso. 
Basta così, v'ho inteso.
Non vo' che trabocchi 
La mia libertà, 
Da' vostri begl'occhi 
Limosinar non vo' la carità. 
Se l'alma è disciolta, 
Tacete una volta. 
Amor, so che cos'è: 
È bello, è buono, 
Ma pur non fa per me, 
Che da' suoi dardi esser non voglio offeso. 
Basta così, v'ho inteso.

Cela suffit comme ça, je comprends.

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

Cela suffit comme ça, je comprends.
Mais vous ne l'aurez pas,
Car dans les filets
Je ne veux pas être pris.
Cela suffit comme ça, je comprends.
Je ne veux pas que trébuche
Ma liberté.
De vos beaux yeux,
Je ne veux pas quémander la charité.
Si l'âme est dissoute,
Taisez-vous pour une fois.
L'amour, je sais ce que c'est :
C'est beau, c'est bon,
Mais ce n'est pas pour moi,
Car je ne veux pas être atteint pas ses dards.
Cela suffit comme ça, je comprends.
