Da qualche tempo in faccia a casa mia

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Da qualche tempo in faccia a casa mia,
Fa dimoranza una biondina bella.
E' senza damo, e credo che la sia

Seduta alla finestra tutto il giorno
Lavora d'ago, e canta sì graziosa,
che ne son preso, e che le vo d'attorno
senza mai posa.

E come suole Amor che dà dell'estro,
M'ha suggerita questa letterina;
E gliela porsi quando n'ebbi il destro
L'altra mattina.
