Those dainty Daffadillies
Which gave to mee sweet Phillis, Fa la la.
To mee, alas, of life and soule deprived,
My spirits they have revived. Fa la la.

As their faire hew excelleth,
in her so beautie dwelleth. Fa la la.
And ever to behold them they invite mee,
So sweetly they delight mee. Fa la la.

Those dainty daffadillies
Which gave to me sweet Phillis, Fa la la.
To me, alas, of life and soul deprived,
My spirits they have revived. Fa la la.

As their fair hue excelleth,
in her so beauty dwelleth. Fa la la.
And ever to behold them they invite me,
So sweetly they delight me. Fa la la.

Quei delicati narcisi
Che mi ha dato la dolce Filli, Fa la la.
A me, ahimè, privato di vita e anima,
hanno ravvivato l'umore. Fa la la.

Come il loro colore chiaro eccelle,
Così in lei la bellezza dimora. Fa la la.
E sempre a osservarli mi invitano,
Tanto dolcemente mi deliziano. Fa la la.
