L'ultima canzone
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Available translation(s): ENG SPA SPA
M'han detto che domani
Nina vi fate sposa,
Ed io vi canto ancor la serenata.
Là nei deserti piani
Là,ne la valle ombrosa,
Oh quante volte a voi l'ho ricantata!

Foglia di rosa
O fiore d'amaranto
Se ti fai sposa
Io ti sto sempre accanto.

Domani avrete intorno
Feste sorrisi e fiori
Nè penserete ai nostri vecchi amori.
Ma sempre notte e giorno
Piena di passione
Verrà gemendo a voi la mia canzone.

Foglia di menta
O fiore di granato,
Nina, rammenta 
I baci che t'ho dato!

Ah! ... Ah! ...

La última canción 
Language: Spanish (Español)  after the Italian (Italiano) 
Nina, me han dicho que mañana te casas, 
¡y yo aún te canto la serenata! 
Allá en las desiertas planicies,
en los valles umbríos,
¡cuántas veces te la habré cantado!

Pétalo de rosa,
flor de amaranto, 
aunque te cases, 
siempre estaré cerca de ti.

Mañana estarás rodeada
de fiesta, sonrisas y flores, 
y no pensarás en nuestros pasados amoríos.
Pero siempre, día y noche,
llena de pasión,
llegará hasta ti mi canción.

Hoja de menta,
flor de granado, 
Nina, recuerda 
los besos que te he dado.
Hoja de menta. 

¡Ah!
