S'andasse Amor a caccia

Language: Italian (Italiano)

S'andasse Amor a caccia,
Grechin a lass'avria per suo diletto
e de le damme seguiria la traccia,
ché vago pargoletto
è questo come quello
e leggiadrett'e bello.
Vezzosetto Grechino,
se pur vol tuo destino
ch'egli sia cacciatore,
prendi costei mentr'ella fugge Amore.

Si Amour allait à la chasse

Language: French (Français) after the Italian (Italiano)

Si Amour allait à la chasse
Il aurait Grechino en laisse pour son plaisir,
Et suivrait les traces du gibier,
Car le garçon est charmant
Et l'un comme l'autre
Est gracieux et beau.
Charmant petit Grechino,
Si même ton destin veut
Qu'il soit chasseur,
Tu peux prendre celle-ci pendant qu'elle fuit Amour.
