Si promette facilmente

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Si promette facilmente  
dagl'amanti d'oggidì,
e la semplice zitella
se lo crede, poverella,
e si fida a dir di sì.
Io però non fo così:
patti chiari, e patti schietti;
pria di dirvi sì o no
voi sarete l'idol mio
il mio ben, la mia speranza;
ma se mai, com'è l'usanza,
mi mancaste, m'ingannaste,
io le mani adoprerò.
