by Giacomo Francesco Bussani (flourished 1673-1680)

Voi scherzate, o giovinette
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Voi scherzate, o giovinette,  
per l'acquisto d'un amante.
Ma in tal guisa, o semplicette,
v'incatena un crin vagante.
V'adornate il crine, il petto,
v'abbigliate nel sembiante.
Ma in tal modo il vostro affetto
vi rapisce il dio volante.
