Language: Italian (Italiano)
tu chiami la tua cara compagnia
cantando: »Vieni, vieni, anima mia«.
A me canto non vale,
e non ho come tu da volar ale.
O felice augelletto,
come nel tuo diletto
ti ricompensa ben l'alma natura:
se ti negò saver, ti diè ventura.

Très doux rossignol
Language: French (Français) after the Italian (Italiano)
Très doux rossignol,
tu appelles ta chère compagne
en chantant : « Viens, viens, mon âme ».
Pour moi le chant n'as pas de valeur,
et je n'ai pas comme des ailes pour voler.
Ô heureux petit oiseau,
comme dans ton plaisir
la mère nature te récompense :
elle te refuse le savoir, elle te donne la bonne fortune.
