Venetian frottola.

Lyrics: Anon

Quando ritrovo la mia pastorella
Al prato con le pecor' in pastura,
Io mi gli accost' e presto la saluto.
La mi risponda "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' anchella.
"Disposta son a quel tuo cordesia,
Ma se non hai denari, va'alla tu via".

When I find my shepherdess in the fields with the sheep I approach and hail her. "Welcome", she replies, then I say, "O gentle shepherdess, no less cruel than pretty, don't be so hard towards me". She replies "I regard you with nothing but favour, but if you are penniless, go away".
