L'amante bugiardo
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Available translation(s): FRE
I miei giorni sereni
infetti col tuo sguardo
e col sospir bugiardo
l'aria tu m'avveleni.
Ah, scherza e non schernire,
ah, mira e non mentire!
Ma falso e menzogner se parli o taci,
i vezzi hai finti e traditori i baci.

Provo dalle bugie
un'aria tormentata
da tue frodi abitata
e dalle furie mie.
Ah, giura e non mentire,
ah, taci e non tradire!
Ma falso e menzogner se parli o taci,
i vezzi hai finti e traditori i baci.

L'amant menteur
Language: French (Français)  after the Italian (Italiano) 
Mes jours paisibles
sont infectés par ton regard
et par tes soupirs menteurs
tu empoisonnes l'air.
Ah, plaisante te ne te moque pas,
ah, regarde et ne mens pas !
Mais tu es faux et menteur que tu parles ou te taises,
tes charmes sont feints, tes baisers enjôleurs.

Par tes mensonges j'éprouve
un sort tourmenté,
habitée par tes tromperies
et par mes colères.
Ah, jure et ne mens pas,
ah, tais-toi et ne trahis pas !
Mais tu es faux et menteur que tu parles ou te taises,
tes charmes sont feints, tes baisers enjôleurs.
