Available translation(s): ENG FRE GRE SPA SPA SPA
La note è bela,
Fa presto, o Nineta,
Andemo in barcheta
I freschi a ciapar!
A Toni g'ho dito
Ch'el felze el ne cava
Per goder sta bava
Che supia dal mar.
Ah!

Che gusto contarsela
Soleti in laguna,
E al chiaro de luna
Sentirse a vogar!
Ti pol de la ventola
Far senza, o mia cara,
Chè zefiri a gara
Te vol sventolar.
Ah!

Se gh'è tra de lori
Chi troppo indiscreto
Volesse da pèto
El velo strapar,
No bada a ste frotole,
Soleti za semo
E Toni el so' remo
Lè a tento a menar.
Ah!

La barquita
Language: Spanish (Español)  after the Italian (Italiano) 
La noche es bella.
de prisa, oh Nineta,
Vayamos en la barquita
El fresco a tomar!
A Toni le he dicho
Que reme a la cueva
a disfrutar la brisilla
Que llega del mar...
¡Ah! 

Qué gusto contarla
solitos en la laguna,
y al claro de luna,
sentarse a remar;
te puedes del viento 
alejar, querida,
que los vientos de cara
te quieren despeinar.
¡Ah!

Si alguno de entre ellos
que es muy indiscreto
quisiera en tu pecho
el velo rasgar,
olvida sus trampas,
Solitos estaremos,
Y Toni y su remo
atento a vadear.
¡Ah!
