Placido è il mar, andiamo

Language: Italian (Italiano)

 Placido è il mar, andiamo;
 Tutto ci rassicura.
 Felice avrem ventura,
 Sù,sù, partiamo or or'.

 Soavi zeffiri
 Soli spirate,
 Del freddo borea
 L'ira calmate.
 D'aura piacevole
 Cortesi siate,
 Se da voi spargesi
 Per tutto amor.

La mer est paisible, allons

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

Chœur :
  La mer est paisible, allons,
  Tout ici est rassurant.
  Nous aurons une heureuse traversée,
  Allons, allons, partons maintenant.

  Doux zéphyrs,
  Soufflez seulement,
  Du froid Borée
  Calmez la colère. 
  D'un souffle agréable
  Soyez généreux,
  Que par vous soit répandu
  Partout l'amour.
