La ci darem la mano

Libretto/Lyrics/Text:

DON GIOVANNI
Là ci darem la mano,
Là mi dirai di sì.
Vedi, non è lontano;
Partiam, ben mio, da qui.

ZERLINA
(Vorrei e non vorrei,
Mi trema un poco il cor.
Felice, è ver, sarei,
Ma può burlarmi ancor.)

DON GIOVANNI
Vieni, mio bel diletto!

ZERLINA
(Mi fa pietà Masetto.)

DON GIOVANNI
Io cangierò tua sorte.

ZERLINA
Presto... non son più forte.

DON GIOVANNI
Andiam!

ZERLINA
Andiam!

A DUE
Andiam, andiam, mio bene.
a ristorar le pene
D'un innocente amor.

English Libretto or Translation:

DON GIOVANNI
Give me thy hand, oh fairest,
Whisper a gentle 'Yes',
Come, if for me thou carest,
With joy my life to bless.

ZERLINA
I would, and yet I would not,
I dare not give assent,
Alas! I know I should not...
Too late, I may repent.

DON GIOVANNI
Come, dearest, let me guide thee.

ZERLINA
Masetto sure will chide me!

DON GIOVANNI
Danger shall ne'er come nigh thee!

ZERLINA
Ah … that I could deny thee!

ZERLINA and DON GIOVANNI
With thee, with thee, my treasure,
This life is nought but pleasure,
My heart is fondly thine.
