Siam iti l'altro giorno dal Curato
Con un regalo, secondo l'usanza,
E là m'apersi, e'n sua presenza ho dato
L'anello di fidanza.

Egli era all'orto, dove ogni mattina
Suol coglier fiori da parar lo altare,
Tolse il più bello ed alla mia Biondina
Lo volle proprio dare.

E come fu del rito il dì fissato,
C'incamminammo entrambi sì festosi,
Che per la strada tutto il vicinato
Dicea: "Viva gli sposi!"

L'autre matin
Language: French (Français)  after the Italian (Italiano) 
L'autre matin notre joie était grande;
Nous avons fait au curé notre offrande;
Suivant l'usage, 
Elle a reçu, doux présage,
L'anneau qui nous engage!
Luim sans mot dire,
Avec un sourire
Prit une rose,
La plume fraîche éclose,
Dans le jardin qui pare son église,
Pour elle, ma promise!
Le jour fixé pour notre mariage,
Ivres d'amour, nous vîmes au passage
Tout le village
Nous fêter d'un cri qu'on devine:
Vive, vive ta Blondine!
