Original text and translations

R.:Plaisir d'amour ne dure qu'un moment,
Chagrin d'amour dure toute la vie.

J'ai tout quitté pour l'ingrate Sylvie
Elle me quitte et prend un autre amant.

« Tant que cette eau coulera doucement
Vers ce ruisseau qui borde la prairie,
Je t'aimerai », me répétait Sylvie.
L'eau coule encore, elle a changé pourtant.

Italian.png Italian text

R.: Piacer d'amor più che un dì sol non dura,
martir d'amor tutta la vita dura.

Tutto scordai per lei, per Silvia infida;
ella or mi scorda e ad altro amor s'affida.

« Finchè tranquillo scorrerà il ruscel
là verso il mar che cinge la pianura
io t'amerò » mi disse l'infedele.
Scorre il rio ancor, ma cangiò in lei l'amor…
