Ninfe e danzar venite,
E voi driadi e napee,
Perché con l’altre dee,
Possiate insiemi unite,
Dar all ninfa mia lodi infinite,
Cantand’a gara in sempiterni honori,
Viva la bella Dori.

English.png English translation

Nymphs, come dance,
and you dryads and wood nymphs,
so that with other goddesses
you can all together
give my nymph infinite praises
by each vying to sing to her everlasting glory:
“Long live fair Dori!”.

Dutch.png Dutch translation

Nimfen, komt en danst,
jullie ook, dryaden en bosfeeën,
zodat jullie, samen met de andere godinnen,
mijn nimf eindeloos prijzen,
wedijverend haar eeuwige lof zingend:
"Lang leve de schone Dori!"
