Mo magari colona
Che ti fuss' il mio ben
Che ti vorraue
Darte la chiaue
De le mie Zoie
Ma su st'e doie
Daspuo che ti cognosso hò sempr' habuo
Dal fatto to
Ah mariola ah lara
L'ho ben sapuo
Che no t'è cara
La mia Pantolonissima persona
Perche mi daila foia
La quadra la moia
La mare d'Orlando
Co dirm'è voio e mai no dise quando
Ma sastu zo che digo
Che chi no me vuol ben no'l stim'un figo.

Oh if only my love could be a support for you,
I'll give you the key of my delight.
But with those sufferings,
from the moment I met you
for this reason, oh rascal,
I know very well that you don't like my Pantalonian person,
because you give me
four time more lust than Orlando
when you say to me
that you will, but not when.
But, listen what I say to you:
I'm not worth anything for her who doesn't love me!

Translation by Luigi Cataldi
