Italian text:
A lieta vita 
Amor c'invita, Fa la la 
Chi gior brama, 
Se di cor ama, 
Donerà il core 
A un tal Signore, Fa la la 

Or lieta omai 
Scacciando i guai, Fa la la 
Quanto ci resta 
Viviamo in festa 
E diam I'onore 
A un tal Signore, Fa la la 
Chi a Lui non crede 
 Privo è di fede, Fa la la 
Onde aver merta 
Contra se aperta 
L'ira e 'l furore 
D'un tal Signore, Fa la la 
 
Ne fuggir giova 
Ch'egli ognun trova, Fa la la 
Veloci ha l'ali 
E foco e strali 
Dunque s'ardore 
Un tal Signore, Fa la la. 

English text:
A Happy Life
Love calls us, Fa la la
Whose long days,
If the heart loves
Give to the foundation
In such a Lord, Fa la la

Or pleased henceforth
Chasing trouble, Fa la la
With what remains
We live in celebration
And have the honor daily
In such a Lord, Fa la la

Who does not believe in Him
Is devoid of faith, Fa la la
In order to have merit
Instead of isolation
Anger and fury
In such a Lord, Fa la la

As it should flee
Every man as he is, Fa la la
Soon has wings
And fire and arrows
So we all adore
Such a Lord, Fa la la.
