    Young fellows: Tu mihi cara, You are dear to me
    mi cara amicula, you are my dear beloved
    corculum es! you're my heart's delight!
    Girls: corculum es
    Girls: dic mi te me amare! (?) tell me you love me!
    Fellows: O tue oculi, Oh, your eyes
    ocelli lucidi, (?) your shinning orbs
    fulgurant, they are sparkling
    efferunt me velut specula. they reflect me like a mirror
    Girls: specula, specula, mirror, mirror,
    tu mihi specula? are you my mirror?
    Fellows: O tua blandula, blanda oh, charming, alluring
    blandicula, tua labella. and kindly speaking your lips
    Girls: cave, cavete! beware, beware everybody!
    Fellows: ad ludum polectant.
    Girls: cave, cavete! cavete! beware, beware everybody!
    Fellows: O tua lingula usque perniciter your tounge ever swiftly it darts
    vibrans ut vipera. like a serpent

    Girls: cavete, cave meam viperam, beware everybody,beware of my serpent
    nisi te mordet. lest it bite you
    Fellows: morde me! bite me!
    Girls: basia me! kiss me!
    Together: ah! ah!
    Fellows: O tuae mammulae. ah, your little breasts

    Fellow: O vos papillae horridulae! oh, your savage, pointedd nipples!
    Fellows: mea manus est cupida, my hands are longing
    illas prensare. to grasp them
    Girls: suave, suave lenire. it's delightful, delightful to soothe them

    O res ridicula! how absurd!
    immensa stultitia. that is utterly stupid
    nihil durare potest nothing can endure
    tempore perpetuo. throughout time everlastingly
    cum bene Sol nituit, once the Sun shone brightly
    redditur Oceano. it sets in the Ocean
    decrescit Phoebe, the Moon wanes
    quam modo plena fuit, how full it was a short while ago
    venerum feritas saepe fit aura levia. love's tempest often becomes a gentle breeze
    tempus amoris cubiculum non est the time for love is not in the bedroom
    sublata lucerna because the lamp has been taken away
    nulla est fides, there is no trust
    perfida omnia sunt. everything is treacherous
    O vos brutos, oh, you are dolts
    vos studidos, you are stupid
    vos stolidos! you are so dull!
    One old man: Lanternari, tene scalam! latern-bearer, hold the ladder!
    Old men: audite ac videte! listen and see!
    Catulli carmina. Catullus' poems
    Together: audiamus! we listen!
