ESCAMILLO
Votre toast ... je peux vous le rendre,
Señors, Señors, car avec les soldats
Oui les toreros peuvent s'entendre,
Pour plaisirs ils ont les combats.
Le cirque est plein, c'est jour de fête,
Le cirque est plein du haut en bas.
Les spectateurs perdant la tête,
Les spectateurs s'interpellent à grands fracas:
Apostrophes, cris et tapage
Poussés jusques à la fureur.
Car c'est la fête du courage,
C'est la fête des gens de cour.
Allons en garde! Allons! Allons! Ah!
Toréador, en garde,
Toréador, toréador,
Et songe bien, oui songe en combattant
Qu'un oeil noir te regarde
Et que l'amour t'attend.
Toréador, l'amour,
L'amour t'attend!

TOUS
Toréador en garde,
Toréador, toréador
En combattant songe qu'un oeil noir te regarde
Et que l'amour t'attend,
Toréador, l'amour, l'amour t'attend!

ESCAMILLO
Tout d'un coup on fait silence;
On fait silence. Ah que se passe-t-il?
Plus de cris; c'est l'instant
Le taureau s'élance en bondissant hors du toril …
Il s'élance, il entre, il frappe, un cheval roule
Entraînant un picador.
Ah bravo toro!, hurle la foule.
Le taureau va ... il vient ... il vient et frappe encor!
En secouant ses banderilles,
Plein de fureur, il court!
Le cirque est plein de sang;
On se sauve, on franchit les grilles;
C'est ton tour maintenant.
Allons en garde! Allons! Allons! Ah!
Toréador, en garde!
Toréador, toréador!
Et songe bien, oui songe en combattant
Qu'un oeil noir te regarde
Et que l'amour t'attend.
Toréador, l'amour t'attend!

TOUS
Toréador en garde!
Toréador! Toréador!
En combattant songe qu'un oeil noir te regarde,
Et que l'amour t'attend.
Toréador, l'amour, l'amour t'attend!

English Libretto or Translation:

Your toast, I can give it to you
Sirs, sirs, for along with the soldiers
Yes, the Toreros, can understand;
For pleasures, for pleasures
They have combats!
The arena is full,
it is the feast day!
The arena is full, from top to bottom;
The spectators, losing their heads,
The spectators began a big fracas!
Apostrophes, cries, and uproar
Grow to a furor!
Because it is a celebration of courage!
It is the celebration of people with heart!
Let’s go, on guard! Let’s go! Let’s go! Ah!
Toreador, on guard! Toreador, Toreador!
And dream away, yes, dream in combat,
That a black eye is watching you,
And that love awaits you,
Toreador, love awaits you!
And dream away, yes dream in combat,
That a black eye is watching you
And may love await you,
Toreador, love await you!

All of a sudden, it is silent
Ah, what is happening?
More cries! It is the moment!
More cries! It is the moment!
The bull throws himself out
Bounding out of the Toril!
He throws himself out! He enters.
He strikes! A horse rolls,
Dragging a picador,
Ah, Bravo! Bull! The crowd roars!
The bull goes, he comes,
He comes and strikes again!
Shaking his banderillos,
Full of fury, he runs!
The arena is full of blood!
They save themselves, they pass the gates
It is your turn now. Let’s go!
On guard! Let’s go! Let’s go! Ah!
Toreador, on guard! Toreador, Toreador!
And dream away, yes, dream in combat,
That a black eye is watching you,
And that love awaits you,
Toreador, Love awaits you!
And dream away, yes, dream in combat,
That a black eye is looking at you
And that love awaits you
Toreador, love awaits you!
And dream away, yes, dream in combat,
That a black eye is looking at you
And that love awaits you
And that love awaits you.
Toreador, love awaits you!
Love! Love! Love!
Toreador, Toreador, love awaits you!
