by Niccolò Minato (1630 - 1698)

Fingete, fingete
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Fingete, fingete,  
voi belle ch'amate,
e ciò che volete
accorte celate.
Menzogna di donna
giammai si condanna,
e sol vince in amor colei ch'inganna.
Mentite, mentite;
ripulse, e speranze
se n' vadano unite
con finte sembianze;
tal volta chi è pia
si mostri tiranna,
che sol vince in amor colei ch'inganna.
