E stati alquanto come bimbi persi
Language: Italian (Italiano)
E stati alquanto come bimbi persi,
Noi ritrovammo entrambi la favella.
Ed io così m'apersi
Son ito a navigar molta marina
E n'ho vedute, delle belle, assai;
Ma come te, Biondina,
Oh, no! Giammai.
Se fui cortese a niuna in altri lidi
D'un sorrisetto, d'un sospir, d'un fiore,
A te, quando ti vidi,
Ho dato il core.
