Italian.png Italian text

Non mi toglia il ben mio
chi non arde d’amor,
come faccio io.

Se non è ingiusto Amore,
io sol avrò de la mia donna il core.

Dunque lasci il ben mio
chi non arde d’amor
come faccio io.

German.png German translation

Es nehme mir mein Glück nicht
wer nicht so vor Liebe brennt wie ich!
Wenn Amor nicht ungerecht ist,
werde nur ich das Herz meiner Geliebten besitzen.
Es lasse mir also mein Glück,
wer nicht vor Liebe brennt wie ich!
