Non è di gentil core

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Non è di gentil core
chi non arde d'amore. 
Ma voi, che del mio cor l'anima sete,
e nel foco d'amor lieta vivete,
sete di gentil core, 
perché ardete d'amore.

Translation(s): ENG FRE

Il n'a pas un cœur aimable

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

Il n'a pas un cœur aimable
celui qui ne brûle pas d'amour.
mais vous, qui êtes l'âme de mon cœur,
et vivez joyeusement dans le feu de l'amour,
votre cœur est aimable
parce que vous brûlez d'amour.
