1  Tutti venite armati
O forte miei soldati.
Fa la la
Io son l'invitt'Amore
Giusto saettatore.
Non temete punto,
Ma in bella schiera uniti,
Me seguitate arditi.
Fa la la

2  Sembrano forti heroi
Quei che son contra voi.
Fa la la
Ma da chi sa ferire,
Non si sapran schermire.
Non temete punto,
Ma coraggiosi e forti,
Siat' a la pugna accorti.
Fa la la

3  Lieti hor movete il piede,
Che vostre sian le prede,
Fa la la
Hor via feriam lo sdegno
Ch'ei de la vita è indegno
Non temete punto
Eterna sia la gloria
E certa è la vittoria,
Fa la la

4  Già morto giace in terra
Chi ci avea mosso guerra,
Fa la la
Or gli altri suoi seguaci
Tutti assaliamo audaci
Non temete punto
Ecco ch'i non estinti
Fuggon già sparsi e vinti,
Fa la la

1  Come all ye, armed,
My hardy soldiers!
Fa la la
I am Love indomitable,
The righteous archer.
Do not fear in the slightest,
But in beautiful array,
Follow me with ardour!
Fa la la

2  They seem strong heroes,
Those in front of you.
Fa la la
But from those who know how to wound,
They will know not how to defend.
Do not fear in the slightest,
But, bold and strong,
Be shrewd in battle!
Fa la la

3  With happiness now move your foot,
Yours will be the prey,
Fa la la
Now let's harm the unworthy
The one which does not deserve to live
Do not fear in the slightest!
Let the glory be eternal,
And sure is the triumph!
Fa la la

4  Already dead lies on the ground
The one which started war with us,
Fa la la
Now his followers
We attack boldly
Do not fear in the slightest!
Now those not dead
Run away scattered and losers.
Fa la la
