Dise 'na vecia[1]:
Che mondo bruto!
Che tempi oribili
Xe mai sti qua!

             Par impossibile:
                S'à cambià tuto
                In te 'sti strepiti
                Tuto à cambià !

Dise 'na zovene:
Tempi beati!
Mi tuta in gringola[2]
Me sento andar.

             Se vive in estasi
                Che se par mati;
                Qua de continuo
                Se pol amar.

La vecia brontola:
Bógia de un fredo!
Me sento i brividi
Per i ossi andar,

             Presto in malorsega[3]
                Andar me vedo,
                Presto me imagino
                Dover crepar!

Canta la picola:
El moro mio[4]
Coi oci luçidi
El m'à vardà ;

             Lu xe el mio idolo,
                Lu xe 'l mio Dio;
