La pastorella

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Una vaga pastorella 
che due lustri appena avea, 
semplicetta, scinta e scalza, 
stava l'oche a guardar sotto una balza;
e mentre alla conocchia il fil traea, 
lieta così canterellar solea: 

"S'io son bella son per me. 
Non mi curo avere amanti; 
e mi rido dei lor pianti, 
dei sospiri e degli oimè. 

Per un grembo di bei fiori 
mille amanti io donerei, 
che con tanti piagnistei 
han l'appalto dei dolori.
Dolce cosa ognor mi pare 
con Lirinda e con Lisetta 
lo sdraiarmi sull'erbetta 
d'un bel prato, e merendare. 

È il più bel piacer del mondo 
far sul prato a mosca cieca 
ed al suon d'una ribeca 
far saltando il ballo tondo. 

Guancial d'oro, scalda mano, 
son trastullo a me gradito. 
Pigli pur, chi vuol, marito. 
Io non ho pensier sì strano."
