DONNA ELVIRA
Ah, chi mi dice mai
Quel barbaro dov'è,
Che per mio scorno amai,
Che mi mancò di fe?
Ah, se ritrovo l'empio
E a me non torna ancor,
Vo' farne orrendo scempio,
Gli vo' cavare il cor.

DON GIOVANNI
piano a Leporello
Udisti? Qualche bella dal vago
abbandonata. Poverina! Cerchiam di
consolare il suo tormento.

LEPORELLO
(Così ne consolò mile e ottocento).

DON GIOVANNI
Signorina...

English Libretto or Translation:

DONNA ELVIRA
Where shall I find a token,
To guide my steps to thee?
My heart is nearly broken,
The world is dark to me,
Ah! If he stood before me.
Fiercely his vows I'd spurn,
The love that once he bore me,
Can never more return!

DON GIOVANNI
Look yonder, 'tis a damsel
Who's by her swain forsaken!

DONNA ELVIRA
The love that once he bore me,
Can nevermore return!

DON GIOVANNI
Ah, poor girl, her grief becomes her!

DONNA ELVIRA
Can nevermore return,
No, can nevermore return!

DON GIOVANNI
I think I'll go and try just to console her.

LEPORELLO
No doubt, like many others, you'll cajole her.

DON GIOVANNI
Fair Senora!
