O Dolce vita mia, ch' t'agio fatto
  ch' me menaz' ognior ognor co toi parole
      Et io me strugo come neu' al sole.

Se sai per tuo amor son quasi matto
   Chatte de l'ardor mio niente te dole
       Et io me strugo come neu' al sole

Mo son perduto et temgomo disfatto
   Ch'mai mandat' a coglier viole
       Et me me strugo come neu' al sole

Questo e piu vero ch'ne il specchio
   Ch'amor nouo sempre caccia il vecchio
       Et io me strugo come neu' al sole
