Quando ritrovo la mia pastorella
Al prato con le pecor' in pastura,
Io mi gli accost' e presto la saluto.
La mi risponde "Tu sia el benvenuto"
Et poi gli dic' in quella, "O gentil pastorella,
Non men crudel che bella, Sei del mio ben ribella;
Deh non esser ver me cotanto dura".
Cosi rispond' anch'ella,
"Disposta son a quel tuo cor desia,
Ma se non hai denari, va alla tu via.

When I meet my sheperdess
In the meadow, with her grazing sheep,
I get near, and greet her.
She answers: "May you be welcome"
And then I tell her, "Oh gentle sheperdess,
Not less cruel than lovely, you rebel against my love;
Alas, don't be so hard to me!".
And so she answers,
"I am willing to what your heart desires,
But if you have no money, go your way!"
