"Questa o quella"
Italian English
Questa o quella per me pari sono
A quant'altre d'intorno mi vedo,
Del mio core l'impero non cedo
Meglio ad una che ad altra beltà.
La costoro avvenenza e qual dono
Di che il fato ne infiora la vita;
S'oggi questa mi torna gradita,
Forse un'altra doman lo sara.
Amongst the beauties here around,
Over me none have control;
None can say, "I am preferred;"
Equal love I feel for all.
Yes, all women are to me
Like the flowers of the field.
Now to this, I am inclined,
Now to that by chance I yield.
La costanza, tiranna del core,
Detestiamo qual morbo crudele,
Sol chi vuole si serbi fedele;
Non v'ha amor, se non v'e liberta.
De' mariti il geloso furore,
Degli amanti le smanie derido,
Anco d'Argo i cent'occhi disfido
Se mi punge una qualche belta.
As one flies from a great peril,
So from constancy I fly;
Those who will, may faithful be,
In freedom only does love lie.
I despise a jealous husband,
And I laugh at lover's sighs-
If a beauty strikes my fancy,
I defy one hundred eyes.
