Se tu m'ami, se sospiri

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Se tu m'ami, se sospiri
Sol per me, gentil pastor,
Ho dolor de' tuoi martiri,
Ho diletto del tuo amor,
Ma se pensi che soletto
Io ti debba riamar,
Pastorello, sei soggetto
Facilmente a t'ingannar.

Bella rosa porporina
Oggi Silvia sceglierà,
Con la scusa della spina
Doman poi la sprezzerà.
Ma degli uomini il consiglio
Io per me non seguirò.
Non perché mi piace il giglio
Gli altri fiori sprezzerò.

Se tu me amas, se sospiras

Language: Portuguese (Português) after the Italian (Italiano)

 Se tu me amas, se sospiras
 Somente por mim, gentil Pastor;
 Tenho pena de teu martírio, 
 Tenho predileção pelo teu amor:

 Mas, se pensas que somente a ti
 Eu deveria amar, 
 Pastorzinho, estás sujeito
 Facilmente a te enganares.

 A Bela Rosa vermelha
 Hoje Sílvio escolherá,
 Com a desculpa do espinho
 Amanhã então a desprezará.

 Mas, dos homens, o conselho
 Eu, por mim, não seguirei, 
 Não é porque me agrada o Lírio	
 Que as outras flores desprezarei.
