Available translation(s): FRE
Bevea Fillide mia
e nel ber dolcemente
baci al dolce liquor porgea sovente.
Tutto quel che rimase
lieta mi diede poi
misto con baci suoi:
io il bevo e non so come bevo Amore,
che dolcement'anch'ei mi bacia il core.

Ma Phyllis a bu
Language: French (Français)  after the Italian (Italiano) 
Ma Phyllis a bu
Et en buvant doucement
A baisé la douce liqueur à maintes reprises.
Tout ce qui est resté
Elle me l'a donnée joyeusement
Mêlé à ses baisers :
Je bois et, je ne sais comment, je bois Amour,
Qui doucement aussi baise mon cœur.
