Conosco il vostro stato, fior gentile

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Conosco il vostro stato, fior gentile,
Non è dover che v'abbassiate tanto
D'amarmi me che son povera e vile,
Ché voi de' belli ne portate il vanto:
E voi de' belli il vanto ne portate,
Conosco ben che voi mi canzonate;
Voi mi burlate, e me lo dice ognuno,
Ma siete bello, e perciò vi perdono.

Wohl kenn' ich Euren Stand, der nicht...

Language: German (Deutsch) after the Italian (Italiano)

Wohl kenn' ich Euren Stand, der nicht gering.
Ihr brauchtet nicht so tief herabzusteigen,
Zu lieben solch ein arm und niedrig Ding,
Da sich vor Euch die Allerschönsten neigen.
Die schönsten Männer leicht besiegtet Ihr,
Drum weiß ich wohl, Ihr treibt nur Spiel mit mir.
Ihr spottet mein, man hat mich warnen wollen,
Doch ach, Ihr seid so schön! Wer kann Euch grollen?
