Il lunedì voi mi parete bella

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Il lunedì voi mi parete bella,
E martedì che mi parete un fiore;
E mercodì che siete un fior novello,
Il giovedì un bel mazzo di viole;
E venerdì che siete la più bella,
Il sabato, che siete un fior fiorito:
E poi vien la domenica mattina,
[Par]1 che siete una rosa in su la spina.
[Si torna al lunedì dell’ altra volta:
Siete una rosa in sulla spina colta.]2
