Affrettiamoci tutti di fruire
I contenti d'Amore
Poi che 'l tempo nemico abbrevia l'hore
Viviam' amiamo sempre cantiamo
Cose di gioia e di gaudio e di riso
Cose d'Amor' e d'un sereno viso.

English.png English translation

Let us all make haste to enjoy
the pleasures of love,
as the enemy, time, shortens the hours:
let us live, let us love, let us ever sing
joyful things of pleasure and laughter,
songs of love, with our faces radiant.

Translation by Mick Swithinbank
