by Pietro Antonio Domenico Bonaventura Trapassi (1698 - 1782), as Pietro Metastasio

Giura il nocchier che al mare
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Available translation(s): ENG FIN GER
Giura il nocchier che al mare
non presterà più fede,
ma se tranquillo il vede
corre di nuovo al mar.

Di non trattar più l'armi
giura il guerrier tal volta,
ma se una tromba ascolta,
già non si sa frenar.
