Ti spontò l'ali, Amor, la donna mia
Language: Italian (Italiano)
Ti spontò l'ali, Amor, la donna mia,
acciò tu gissi solo
nei suoi begl'occh'a volo.
Mira se queste sono
piume de l'ali tue, ch'io n'ebb'in dono:
o perché piangi, stolto?
prendi le piume tue,
ma taci pria e gl'occh'asciugh'e 'l volto.
Ah, tel credevi, Amore!
se voi le piume tue, rendimi il core.

Elle t'a coupé les ailes, Amour, ma dame
Language: French (Français) after the Italian (Italiano)
Elle t'a coupé les ailes, Amour, ma dame,
Pour que tu puisses seulement
Voler dans ses beaux yeux.
Regarde si ce sont les tiennes
Ces plumes qu'on ma données.
Oh, pourquoi pleures-tu, fou ?
Prends tes plumes mais tais-toi d'abord
Et sèche tes yeux et ton visage.
Ah, tu me croyais, Amour ?
Si tu veux tes plumes, rends-moi mon cœur.
