Consiglio a Nice
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Sul ciglio tuo severo
Si pose accorto amore,
A chi ti vede il core
Rapisce e libertâ.
Ma poi se il prigionero
Si lagna e se ti chiede
Al suo penar mercede
Non trova in te pietâ.

Non credi se ti dice
Che senza amore in petto
Non v'è piacer perfetto
Non v'è felicitâ.
Almeno, o bella Nice,
Se amore non vuoi bel seno
De' tuoi bei lumi almeno
Deh tempra la crudeltâ.

Sous ton regard sévère
Language: French (Français)  after the Italian (Italiano) 
Sous ton regard sévère
pourquoi jeune bergère
de l'enfant de Cythère
nous dérober les traits
il faut dans sa jeunesse 
du dieu de la tendresse
que l'amoureuse ivresse 
enflamme tes attraits.

Écoute jeune amie
cette voix qui te crie
sans amour dans la vie
on ne peut être heureux
si cette douce flamme 
n'agite point ton âme
que l'amour qui m'enflamme 
anime au moins tes yeux.
