La manza mia si chiama saporita,
la tan da ra ri tun da,
la par la principessa di Salerno,
la tan da ra ri tun da.
Et io ci ho fatto fare questa canzone,
la tan da ra ri tun da.
O saporita, quando vien da l'horto,
porta 'no fico fresco per la tua fé.
O mia saporitella,
la chi, la chiri ghirighella,
quanto sei bella.

German.png German translation

Meine Liebste nennt man appetitlich,

sie sieht aus wie die Fürstin von Salerno.

Und ich habe ihr dieses Lied machen lassen.

O meine Süße, wenn du aus dem Garten kommst,
bringe eine frische Feige mit für deine Treue.
O meine kleine Süße,

wie schön du bist.

Translation by Gerhard Weydt

My beloved is called savoury,

she looks like the princess of Salerno.

And I have had made this song for her.

O my sweet one, when you come from the garden,
bring a fresh fig for your faith.
O my sweetest,

how beautiful you are.

Translation by Gerhard Weydt

Isabella Villamarina (1503 - 1559), who was married to Ferrante Sanseverino (1507 - 1568), Prince of Palermo, was regarded as one of the most beautiful and brilliant women of her time. (;
Azzaiolo himself cites in "Bona via faccia barca" from his second book a different text: "fico fresco e due mele ros" = ...and two rosy apples, which makes the hidden meaning more obvious. Also set to music by Antonino Barges, Il primo libro de villotte (Venice, Gardano 1550).
