Se trovi in piazza qualche ragazza,	If in the piazza you find some girl,
Teco ancor quella cerca menar.		try to make her come here with you.
Senza alcun ordine la danza sia,	Let the dance be wild,

Chi l' alemanna farai ballare.		and an allemande you shall lead.
Ed io frattanto dall' altro canto	In the meanwhile I shall have my own fun
Con questa e quella vo' amoreggiar.	making love to this or that girl.
Ah la mia lista doman mattina		Ah, my list tomorrow morning
D' una decina devi aumentare.		shall have at least ten new entries.
