1. Dainty fine sweet nymph delightful,
While the Sun aloft is mounting,
Sit we here our loves recounting.
Fa la la.
With sugared gloses,
Among these roses.
Fa la la.

2. Why alas are you so spiteful,
Dainty nymph but O too cruel.
Wilt thou kill thy dearest jewel?
Fa la la.
Kill then and bliss me,
But first come kiss me.
Fa la la.

1. Delicata bella ninfa, dolce e incantevole,
Mentre il sole in alto sta salendo,
Sediamoci qui a raccontare i nostri amori.
Fa la la la.
Con sdolcinate chiose,
Tra queste rose.
Fa la la la.

2. Perché, ahimè, sei così perfida,
Ninfa delicata ma, ah, troppo crudele,
Vuoi uccidere il tuo gioiello più caro?
Fa la la la.
Uccidimi allora e mandami in estasi
Ma prima vieni, baciami.
Fa la la la.
