El grillo - By Josquin des Prez (1450 - 1521)

El grillo è buon cantore
The cricket is a good singer

che tiene longo verso.
and he sings for a long time

Dale beve grillo canta.
Give him a drink so he can go on singing

Ma non fa come gli altri uccelli,
But he doesn`t do what the other birds do

come li han cantato un poco
Who after singing a little

van` de fatto in altro loco,
Just go elsewhere.

sempre el grillo sta pur saldo
The cricket is always steadfast

Quando la maggior è [l`] caldo
When it is hottest,

alhor canta sol per amore.
then he sings just for love.
