Bei labbri, che Amore
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Available translation(s): FIN GER
  Bei labbri, che Amore
formò per suo nido,
non ho più timore,
vi credo, mi fido:
giuraste d'amarmi;
mi basta così.
  Se torno a lagnarmi
che Nice m'offenda,
per me più non splenda
la luce del dì.

Ihr Lippen, ihr schönen
Language: German (Deutsch)  after the Italian (Italiano) 
  Ihr Lippen, ihr schönen,
die Amor zum Neste sich schuf,
nichts hab ich zu fürchten,
ich glaube und trau’ euch:
Ihr schwörtet mir Liebe,
das ist mir genug.
  Sollt’ mich erneut Nices 
falsches Spiel kränken,
dann leuchtet nicht länger
des Tages Schein mir.
