by Paolo Antonio Rolli (1687 - 1765)

Cedo a Roma, e cedo a te
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Cedo a Roma, e cedo a te.  
Questi dica innanzi a me,
s'ebbi già romano il cor:
ma in amor,
no non ti cedo no, ti sfido all'armi.
E se rival tu sei,
esser duce più non déi:
l'onor ti vieterà
privar di libertà chi non disarmi.
