M'è stato detto che tua madre 'n vuole
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
M'è stato detto che tua madre 'n vuole;
Contentala, bellin, non ci venire;
Giovanettino, qui non abbadare:
Faglie dispetto, amor, vienmi a trovare.
Giovanettino, non abbadare a questo:
Faglie dispetto, amor, vienci piú spesso,
Giovanettin, non abbadar cosí:
Faglie dispetto, amor, vienci ogni dí.

Available translation(s): ENG FRE
Man sagt mir, deine Mutter woll es nicht;
So bleibe weg, mein Schatz, tu ihr den Willen.
Ach Liebster, nein! tu ihr den Willen nicht,
Besuch mich doch, tu's ihr zum Trotz, im stillen!
Nein, mein Geliebter, folg ihr nimmermehr,
Tu's ihr zum Trotz, komm öfter als bisher!
Nein, höre nicht auf sie, was sie auch sage;
Tu's ihr zum Trotz, mein Lieb, komm alle Tage!
