Amarilli, mia bella
Amarilli, mia bella,
Non credi, o del mio cor dolce desio,
D'esser tu l'amor mio?
Credilo pur: e se timor t'assale,
[Dubitar non ti vale.]1
Aprimi il petto e vedrai scritto in core:
Amarilli, Amarilli, Amarailli
è il mio amore.

Amarili, mi bella
Amarili, mi bella,
no crees en el dulce deseo de mi corazón,
que tu eres mi amor?
Creéme pues, y si te asalta el temor,
no dudes que es verdad.
Abre mi pecho y velo escrito en mi corazón:
Amarili, Amarili, Amarili,
es mi amada.
