Laieta
Language: Catalan (Catal√†) 
Available translation(s): ENG
Si fós ocellet aniria volant,
i a ca' la Laieta,
aniria a parlar.

Son pare em diria:
"Què voleu, l'hereu?"
"Vinc per la Laieta,
si me la doneu."
"Torneu demà vespre
de bon matí;
si ella us volia,
jo dire que sí."

La noia bonica diu que sí que ho vol,
i a la matinada canta el rossinyol.
Laieta, Laieta, Laieta, Lajeta,
Laieta bonica diu que sí que ho vol.
