Scherza in mar la navicella
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Available translation(s): FRE
Scherza in mar la navicella
Mentre ride un aura feconda,
Ma se poi fiera procella
Turba il ciel, sconvolge l’onda
Va perduta a naufragar.

Non così questo mio core
Cederà d’un empia sorte
Allo sdegno ed al furore
Che per anco in faccia a morte
Sa da grande trionfar.

Le petit bateau va joyeusement sur la mer
Language: French (Français)  after the Italian (Italiano) 
Le petit bateau va joyeusement sur la mer
Tandis que souffle une brise tranquille,
Mais si une terrible tempête
Trouble le ciel, soulève l'onde,
Il est condamné au naufrage.

Mon cœur n'est pas ainsi,
Il ne cédera pas devant un cruel destin,
À l'indignation et la fureur,
Même face à la mort,
Il triomphera fièrement.
