Saltarello
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Io vò cantar mai sempre
Poichè la donna mia,
Con un sol sguardo di dolcezza, il core
Ha potuto ingombrarmi d'Armonia.
Sia benedett'Amore
Per cui son fatto degno
D'aver il ben c'ho desiato sempre.
O felice mia sorte, alma mia gioia!
Io vò cantar mai sempre.

I want to sing forever
Language: English  after the Italian (Italiano) 
I want to sing forever,
since my lady,
with one sweet look, is able to fill my heart
with harmony.
Blessed be love
that made me worthy to
receive the good I have always desired.
Oh, my happy fate, joy of my soul!
I want to sing forever.
