Amor tu sai pur fare
Ch'un cor di ghiaccio si riscaldi e cuoca
E ch'agli amanti al fin freddo non nuoca.

Perché non fai tu ora
Quel di ma donna si consumi ed arda
Che contra a te vuol esser sì gagliarda?

O se tu vuoi in malora
Mostrar d'aver fra noi maggior impero,
Fa che freddo sia or come già ero.
