Translation by Paul Heyse (1830 - 1914)

Giovinottino, non si fa cosí
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Giovinottino, non si fa cosí;
Si fa le cose lecite ed oneste.
Me mi tieni la dama d'ogni dí,
Le altre le tieni nel dí delle feste.
Giovinottino, se cosí farai,
La dama d'ogni dí la perderai.

Nein, junger Herr, so treibt man's...
Language: German (Deutsch)  after the Italian (Italiano) 
Available translation(s): ENG FRE
Nein, junger Herr, so treibt man's nicht, fürwahr;
Man sorgt dafür, sich schicklich zu betragen.
Für Alltags bin ich gut genug, nicht wahr?
Doch Bessre suchst du dir an Feiertagen.
Nein, junger Herr, wirst du so weiter sünd'gen,
Wird dir den Dienst dein Alltagsliebchen künd'gen.
