Fuor de la bella gaiba

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Fuor de la bella [gaiba]1
Fuge lo lusignuolo.
Plange lo fantino, poiche
non trova lo
So oselino ne la gaiba nova;
E dice cum dolo:
Chi gli avrì l'usolo?
En un buschetto se mise ad andare;
Sentì l'ozletto sì dolce cantare.
Or bel, [lusignuolo]2, 
torna nel mio brolo.

Translation(s): ENG FRE
