Floris
Language: Spanish (Español) 
A la feria va Floris 
por que tenga la feria
Mas joyas que el Oriente
Mas luces que la esfera

Disfraza da de corto 
Con perlas pide perlas
Corales por corales
por rosas primaveras

Mal se dis fraza el cielo 
Con manto de tinieblas
Que las estrellas parlan
que es cielo quien las lleve

Floris
Language: French (Français)  after the Spanish (Español) 
Sous ta noire mantille,
Ô Floris ton oeil brille
Moins riante et moins belle
Paraît l'aube nouvelle 

Vainement le ciel sombre
S'enveloppe de voiles
La clarté des étoiles
L'indique à travers l'ombre

Sous ta noire mantille
Ô Floris ton oeil brille
Moins brillante et moins belle 
Paraît l'aube nouvelle 

Enivré de tes charmes
Et les yeux pleins de larmes,
Ô beauté trop chérie
Tout le jour je m'écrie
