Per piacere al mio sposino

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Per piacere al mio sposino,  
colle grazie del mio sesso,
sono stata fin adesso
sei modiste a consultar.
Che ti par del mio vestito?
Non ti piace? Ho già capito
ehi: fo presto a ripiegar.
All'uso di Venezia,
con zendaletto in testa,
varé co' son modesta
co' son da coccolar.
Perché me feu quel muso?
Pare 'l sior Brontolon.
Via, via: gavè' rason:
me vago a despoggiar.
Faite expres, pour être aimée
me voilà, mon cher ami,
je suis, vous le voyez,
a la mode de Paris.
Comment donc? Qu'est que c'est ça?
N'êtez vous de ce goût là?
Via: lascia fare a me.
Tutti i galanti a gara
diran, ch'io son vezzosa:
e in grazia della sposa
faran la corte a te.
