Italian.png Italian text

Se Florindo è fedele io m’innamorerò,
S’è fedele Florindo m’innamorerò.
Potrà ben l’arco tendere il faretrato arcier,
Ch’io mi saprò difendere d’un guardo lusinghier.
Preghi, pianti e querele, io non ascolterò
Ma se sarà fedele io m’innamorerò,
Se Florindo è fedele io m’innamorerò.

English.png English translation

If Florindo will behave in loyalty, I'll fall in love with him.
If he's loyal, I'll fall in love with him.
Let him tighten his bow, That quiverful archer,
That I'll be able to defend myself from such a tempting glance.
I won't listen to petitions, tears and quarrels.
But if he'll behave in loyalty, I'll fall in love with him.
If he's loyal, I'll fall in love with him.
