Che stuol d'infelici

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Che stuol d'infelici  
lo scettro ti diede,
il mondo lo crede.
Tu stesso lo dici,
no 'l niego, sarĂ .
Ma bada, fratello,
a quello che fai.
Che se non avrai
fortuna e cervello,
e regno e regnante
in men d'un istante
al diavolo andrĂ .
Non son dottoressa,
non son profetessa,
ma il mondo un pochetto
io so come va.
