Caro mio ben come facesti mai,
A mettermi si presto in tanti guai,
Quando ripens' al fuoco a la saetta' al laccio,
Onde ferit' e strett' a poco a poco,
Ne l'incendio crudel tutto mi sfaccio,
Vinto dal gran martire,
Forz' e ch'io torn' a dire,
Caro mio ben come facesti mai,
A mettermi si presto in tanti guai.
