Se Florindo è fedele

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Se Florindo è fedele 
io m'innamorerò.

Potrà ben l'arco tendere 
il faretrato arcier,
Ch'io mi saprò difendere 
d'un guardo lusinghier.
Preghi, pianti e querele, 
io non ascolterò.
Ma se sarà fedele 
io m'innamorerò.

Si Florindo est fidèle

Language: French (Français) after the Italian (Italiano)

Si Florindo est fidèle,
je tomberai amoureuse.

Il peut bien tendre son arc,
l'archer avec son carquois,
je saurai me défendre
d'un regard flatteur.
Prières, pleurs et disputes,
je ne les écouterai pas.
Mais s'il est fidèle
je tomberai amoureuse.
