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.

Man sagt mir, deine Mutter woll' es nicht;
So bleibe weg, mein Schatz, thu' ihr den Willen.
Ach Liebster, nein! thu ihr den Willen nicht,
Besuch' mich doch, thu's ihr zum Trotz, im Stillen!
Nein, mein Geliebter, folg' ihr nimmermehr,
Thu's ihr zum Trotz, komm öfter als bisher!
Nein, höre nicht auf sie, was sie auch sage;
Thu's ihr zum Trotz, mein Lieb, komm alle Tage!
