I baci
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Available translation(s): FRE
Oh dolci, oh cari, oh desiati baci!
Unite l'alme vanno
sul labro ad incontrarsi.
Col bacio l'alme fanno
nel cor gran colpi darsi.

Vezzosette si accordano;
viperette si mordano.
Ma sono i lor dolcissimi furori
grand union dei cori.
Oh dolci, oh cari, oh desiati baci!
Bacia, mia bocca, e taci!

Les baisers
Language: French (Français)  after the Italian (Italiano) 
Oh, baisers doux, oh, aimables, oh, désirés !
Les âmes vont s'unir.
pour se rencontrer sur les lèvres.
Avec un baiser les âmes
dans le cœur se donnent de grands coups.

Gracieusement elles s'accordent ;
comme des vipères elles se mordent.
Mais dans leur furie la plus douce
il y a une grande union des cœurs.
Oh, baisers doux, oh, aimables, oh, désirés !
Baise ma bouche et silence !
