Non senti tu ne l'aria
il profumo che spande Primavera?
Non senti tu ne l'anima 
il suon de nova voce lusinghiera? 
È l'April! È la stagion d'amore! 
Deh! vieni, o mia gentil 
su' prati'n fiore!

Il piè trarrai fra mammole,
avrai su'l petto rose e cilestrine,
e le farfalle candide
t'aleggeranno intorno al nero crine.
È l'April! È la stagion d'amore!
Deh! vieni, o mia gentil 
su' prati'n fiore!

Abril
Language: Spanish (Español)  after the Italian (Italiano) 
¿No notas en el aire 
el perfume que exhala la primavera?
¿No sientes en el alma
el sonido de una voz lisonjera?
¡Es abril! Es la estación del amor.
¡Ven bella mia 
a los prados floridos!

Tu pie andará entre violetas
llevarás en el pecho rosas y flores celestes
y las cándidas mariposas
revolotearán entorno a tu negro cabello.
¡Es abril! Es la estación del amor.
¡Ven bella mia 
a los prados floridos!
