Mai piu me fid' a femine trafane.
  poiche tu m'hai capat' ala taliola,
  o che figliola va fidatenne vid'
  o ve ti trovi o che figliola

English.png english translation

I never have put trust in a drudgery woman.
   after you've dumped me,
   Isn't your daughter afraid to see
   or do you find or have a girl
