Quand’apparisti, o vag’o amata Dori,
i satiri e le ninfe,
gl’antri lasciaro e le correnti linfe;
e con quest’i pastori a te d’intorno
tessean leggiadri balli,
al suon de bei cristalli.
Di verde lauro il biondo crin adorno
ti fer’altri, cantand’in dolci chori
“Viva la bella Dori!”.

When you appeared, o charming and beloved Dori,
the satyrs and nymphs
left their grottoes and the running waters;
and, with these, the shepherds
wove graceful dances around you.
To the sound of the fair, crystal waters,
others decked your golden locks with green laurel,
singing in sweet choruses:
“Long live fair Dori!”.

Toen jij verscheen, o beminde Dori,
verlieten de saters en nimfen hun grotten
en hun vliedende beken,
en, met hen, weefden de herders
sierlijke dansjes om je heen.
Op de klank van de kristalheldere wateren
je gouden lokken bedekt met groene laurier,
zingen wij in lieflijke koren:
"Leve de schone Dori!"
