Voi sete la mia stella,
voi Filli mia bella,
però s'Amor m'ancide o l’empia sorte,
dirò voi Filli voi mi date morte.

Voi pur bramate ogn' hora,
voi Filli ch'io mora,
poi che fuggite ohimè,
ma se si more,
dirò voi Filli voi ancidete il core.

Voi sol mi date pene,
voi Filli mio bene,
ma s'avien lasso mai,
che'l duol m'ancida,
diro voi Filli voi sete homicida.

Fin che siate indi paga,
voi Filli ma vaga,
di mia morte amerovvi e sempre à torto,
diro voi Filli, voi m'havete morto.

You are my star,
You Filli, my beauty,
But if Love kills me, or unrighteous fate,
I’ll tell you Filli you give me death.

You still desire every hour,
You Filli, that I die,
As you escape, alas,
But if death comes
I’ll tell you Filli that you kill my heart.

You alone give me troubles,
You Filli, my goodness,
But if it ever happens
That I let pain kill me,
I’ll tell you Filli that you are a killer.

Until you will be finally satisfied,
You Filli my beauty,
Of my death, I will always love you in vain,
I’ll tell you Filli, you made me die.
