Venti volte in vita mia

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Venti volte in vita mia
fin nell’Indie sono stato.
Dalla Cina in Barbaria 
son venuto, son tornato
e ogni ceto di persone
mi trattò con civiltà.

(Piano a Livia) A fuggire io vi consiglio
se vi parla mai d’amore…
(Ah la vedo in gran periglio,
sento oh Dio per lei pietà.)
Mio signor, non v’offendete;
son sinceri i detti miei;
vi rispetto, so chi siete
ma il mio cor non cambierei
colla vostra nobiltà.
