Se vittorie sì belle
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Available translation(s): FRE
Se vittorie sì belle
han le guerre d'amore,
fatti guerrier mio core.
E non temer degl'amorosi strali
le ferite mortali.
Pugna, sappi ch'è gloria
il morir per desio de la vittoria.

Si de si belles victoires
Language: French (Français)  after the Italian (Italiano) 
Si de si belles victoires
Ont les guerres d'amour,
Deviens un guerrier, mon cœur.
Et ne crains pas des flèches d'amour
Les blessures mortelles.
Combats, en sachant qu'il est glorieux
De mourir par désir de la victoire.
