Florentine dance song composed for Lorenzo the Magnificent. The composer is now unknown.
Lyrics: Anon

La pastorella si leva per tempo
Menando la caprete a pascer fora.
Di for' in fora, la traditora
Coi suoi begl'occhi la m'innamora
E fa di mezza notte apparir giorno.

The shepherdess gets up early and leads the goats out to pasture. She makes me fall in love with her beautiful eyes, the minx, and makes deepest night appear day.
