Mai piu me fid' a femine trafane.
 poiche tu m'hai capat' ala taliola,
 o che figliola va fidatenne vid'
 o ve ti trovi o che figliola

English.png english translation

I never have put trust in a drudgery woman.
 after you've dumped me,
 Isn't your daughter afraid to see
 or do you find or have a girl

NB. The translation is very raw and may be improved.
