La pastorella delle Alpi
Son bella pastorella,
che scende ogni mattino
ed offre un cestellino
di fresche frutta e fior.
Chi viene al primo albore
avrà vezzose rose
E poma rugiadose,
venite al moi gairdin,
Chi del notturno orrore
Smari la buona via,
alla capanna mia
ritrovera il cammin.
Venite o passagiero,
La pastorella è qua,
Ma il fior del suo pensiero
Ad uno solo darà!
