Translation by Paul Heyse (1830 - 1914)

Lassatela passar che fa la brava
Language: Italian (Italiano) 
Lassatela passar che fa la brava,
La bizzarrina del campo de' fiori.
Si vede bene all'occhi quanto è vaga:
Ogni tre dí li muta gli amatori.
E fa come lo fiume di Toscana,
Raccoglie tutta l'acqua de' valloni,
E fa come lo fiume di Firenza,
Quando l'ha tanti amanti, e quando è senza.

Laß sie nur gehn, die so die Stolze...
Language: German (Deutsch)  after the Italian (Italiano) 
Available translation(s): ENG FRE
Laß sie nur gehn, die so die Stolze spielt,
Das Wunderkräutlein aus dem Blumenfeld.
Man sieht, wohin ihr blankes Auge zielt,
Da Tag um Tag ein andrer ihr gefällt.
Sie treibt es grade wie Toscanas Fluß,
Dem jedes Berggewässer folgen muß.
Sie treibt es wie der Arno, will mir scheinen:
Bald hat sie viel Bewerber, bald nicht einen.
