by Carlo Goldoni (1707 - 1793)

Un amante costante e fedele
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Available translation(s): ENG
Un amante costante e fedele
pianger deve, soffrire e penare,
s’è la donna tiranna e crudele,
deve sempre servire e pregare
né mai chieder sfacciato così.
 
Nella scuola d’amor non precede
ad un lungo servir la mercede,
sol premiato è chi fido servì.
