Libretto/Lyrics/Text:

DON GIOVANNI
Alfin siam liberati,
Zerlinetta gentil, da quel scioccone.
Che ne dite, mio ben, so far pulito?

ZERLINA
Signore, Ŕ mio marito...

DON GIOVANNI
Chi? Colui?
Vi par che un onest'uomo,
un nobil cavalier, com'io mi vanto,
possa soffrir che quel visetto d'oro,
quel viso inzuccherato
da un bifolcaccio vil sia strapazzato?

ZERLINA
Ma, signore, io gli diedi
parola di sposarlo.

DON GIOVANNI
Tal parola
non vale un zero. Voi non siete fatta
per essere paesana; un altra sorte
vi procuran quegli occhi bricconcelli,
quei labretti sý belli,
quelle dituccie candide e odorose,
parmi toccar giuncata e fiutar rose.

ZERLINA
Ah!... Non vorrei...

DON GIOVANNI
Che non vorreste?

ZERLINA
Alfine
ingannata restar. Io so che raro
colle donne voi altri cavalieri
siete onesti e sinceri.

DON GIOVANNI
╚ un impostura
della gente plebea! La nobilitÓ
ha dipinta negli occhi l'onestÓ.
Ors¨, non perdiam tempo; in questo istante
io ti voglio sposar.

ZERLINA
Voi!

DON GIOVANNI
Certo, io.
Quel casinetto Ŕ mio: soli saremo
e lÓ, gioiello mio, ci sposeremo.

English Libretto or Translation:

DON GIOVANNI
At last we have dispatch'd him,
Zerlinetta to leave the booby liked not;
Did I manage it well, my pretty daisy?

ZERLINA
My lord, he's my affianc'd.

DON GIOVANNI
Who? that clown?
Think you a man of feeling,
A well-born Cavalier, such ev'n as I am,
Tamely can see such sweet and dainty freshness,
Such delicate perfections,
All thrown away upon a senseless rustic?

ZERLINA
But, my Lord,
I have promis'd to marry him to-morrow.

DON GIOVANNI
Who could help breaking such a promise?
You were not intended by nature for a peasant;
A brighter fortune is in store
For those balmy cheeks of roses,
Where sly Cupid reposes,
That snowy brow where not a shadow lowers
That pretty mouth of coral, that breathes o flowers.

ZERLINA
Ah, but I would not...

DON GIOVANNI
What is't you would not?

ZERLINA
I would not in my love be deceiv'd.
I know how seldom you great lords
With us simple country maidens court with loyal intention.

DON GIOVANNI
That's a vile slander, a malicious invention;
With noble birth, noble manners
Go always hand in hand;
I'll shew you an example;
This very instant I will make you my wife.

ZERLINA
You?

DON GIOVANNI
I, for certain: Come to my quiet dwelling,
Oh, come, my fairest angel,
There I will wed thee.
