Da brava, Catina
Language: Italian - Venetian (dialect) 
Available translation(s): ENG FRE GER SPA
Da brava Catina, 
mostréve bonina,
Mostréve pietosa, 
cortese con mi.

Un baso dimando, 
nol xè un contrabando,
no xè una gran cosa, 
diséme de sì.

Basè pur Sior Pare,
Basè Siora Mare,		
E al vostro Zaneto		
Un baso neghi?		
E al vostro Zaneto		
Un baso neghi?		

Da brava Catina,
Mostréve bonina,	
Cavème sta vogia,	
Diséme de sì.
Cavème sta vogia,	
Diséme de sì.

Teure Catina
Language: German (Deutsch)  after the Italian - Venetian (dialect) 
Teure Catina,
Seid gütig,
Habt Mitleid
Und seid höflich zu mir.

Eine Kuss ersuche ich,
Stehlt ihn nicht; 
Es ist kein groβer Dienst,
So sagt doch ja!

Ihr küsst Euren Herrn Vater,
küsst Eure Frau Mutter,
und Euren Zaneto
verweigert Ihr einen Kuss?
und Euren Zaneto
verweigert Ihr einen Kuss?

Teure Catina,
Seid gütig,
Erfüllet diesen Wunsch,
Sagt doch ja!
Erfüllet diesen Wunsch,
Sagt doch ja!
