Translation by Paul Heyse (1830 - 1914)

Chi ti ci fa venir, chi ti ci chiama?
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Chi ti ci fa venir, chi ti ci chiama?
Chi ti ci fa venir mal volentieri?
Vanne pure dov'hai fissa la dama,
Vanne pure dov'hai fissi i pensieri.
Vanne pure dov'hai 'l pensier sicuro:
Che tu venga da me non me ne curo.
Vanne pure dov'hai fissa la dama
Chi ti ci fa venir, che ti ci chiama?

Wer rief dich denn? Wer hat dich herbestellt?
Wer hieß dich kommen, wenn es dir zur Last?
Geh zu dem Liebchen, das dir mehr gefällt,
Geh dahin, wo du die Gedanken hast.
Geh nur, wohin dein Sinnen steht und Denken!
Daß du zu mir kommst, will ich gern dir schenken.
Geh zu dem Liebchen, das dir mehr gefällt!
Wer rief dich denn? Wer hat dich herbestellt?
