Prima parte
Donna felice et bella
Dal cui felice seno Amor sovente
M'accende l'alma et sì felicemente
M'impiag'il cor da l'un'et l'altra stella.

Seconda parte
Se ne la mente mia
Qual'hor figuro voi crudel et ria
Sì m'è dolce'il dolor felice'il pianto
Hor se benigna vi rendest'et pia
O felicità mia ditemi quanto
Fora dolc'il gioir felice'il canto.
