Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

Aria: Dorinda
Amore è qual vento, che gira il cervello,
ho inteso che a cento commincia a farli godere,
ma a un corto piacere dà un lungo dolor.

Se uniti due cori si credon beati
gelosi timori li fan sfortunati;
se un core è sprezzato, divien arrabiato, così fa l'amor.

English Libretto or Translation:

Aria: Dorinda
Love is like a gust of wind that spins the head,
I’ve heard it starts well and is pleasing,
But after a short while, there is a long sadness.

If two hearts are united, and believe themselves blessed,
jealousy and fear soon get the better of them;
if a heart is betrayed, it becomes deranged. That’s what love
can do.
