Lungo i cheti sentieri

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Lungo i cheti sentieri
il biancospin verdeggia;
dai fiorenti verzieri
la primavera occhieggia.
Vuoi tu meco fuggir?
Vuoi tu meco venir?
Bimba da gl'occhi neri,
lungo i cheti sentieri?

A pie degli alberelli
piovono i fior del melo;
ride ai germi novelli
la cortesia del cielo.
Vuoi tu meco fuggir?
Vuoi tu meco venir?
Bimba da gl'occhi belli,
lungo i cheti sentieri?

Sotto ai soli fulgenti
la selve, ecco, si desta;
e all'aure rinascenti 
amor confida in festa.
Vuoi tu meco fuggir?
Vuoi tu meco venir?
Bimba da gli occhi ardenti,
sotto ai soli fulgenti?
