Per onor farsi ammazzare!

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Per onor farsi ammazzare!  
Ma Taddeo, che te ne pare?
Meglio è star nell'osteria,
meglio è fare il locandier.
Ma se il cielo ha decretato
questo mio generalato:
ricusar! sì bassa idea
saria d'anima plebea
troppo ignobile pensier.
Su dunque alla reggia:
sul trono la figlia
regina si veggia,
e veggasi il padre
di belliche squadre
Taddeo condottier.
Mia cara locanda,
cari ospiti addio:
già pongo in oblio
l'antico mestier.
