You can help us modernize! The present website has been online for a very long time and we want to bring it up to date. As of May 6, we are $2,380 away from our goal of $15,000 to fund the project. The fully redesigned site will be better for mobile, easier to read and navigate, and ready for the next decade. Please give today to join dozens of other supporters in making this important overhaul possible!

L'Amante Timido eccitato

Language: Italian (Italiano)

T'invito à godere
mio core e paventi?
Avezzo ai tormenti
io sdegno il piacere
Ardisci e godrai
(à 2:) chi non s'arrischia non gioisce mai.

Il bene hai presente
mio cor che tu brami?
À gioie tu chiami
chi gioie non sente
Ardisci e godrai
(à 2:) chi non s'arrischia non gioisce mai.

L'inuito ti piace
mio cor ne ti affretti?
Vò pian coi diletti
ch'il bene e fallace
Ardisci e godrai
(à 2:) chi non s'arrischia non gioisce mai.

L'amant timide excité

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

Je t'invite à te réjouir,
mon cœur, et tu as peur !
Habitué aux tourments,
je méprise le plaisir.
Ose et tu te réjouiras.
( à 2) Celui qui ne prend pas de risque ne se réjouira jamais.

Tu as maintenant le bien,
mon cœur, que tu désires.
Tu m'appelles pour des joies
moi qui ne ressent pas de joie.
Ose et tu te réjouiras.
( à 2) Celui qui ne prend pas de risque ne se réjouira jamais.

L'invitation te plaît,
mon cœur, pourquoi ne te hâtes-tu pas ?
Je vais lentement avec les plaisirs
car le bien est fallacieux.
Ose et tu te réjouiras.
( à 2) Celui qui ne prend pas de risque ne se réjouira jamais.
