Libretto/Lyrics/Text:

FERRANDO
ai Familiari vicini ad assopirsi
All'erta, all'erta! Il Conte
N'č d'uopo attender vigilando; ed egli
Talor presso i veroni
Della sua cara, intere
Passa le notti.

FAMILIARI
Gelosia le fiere
Serpi gli avventa in petto!

FERRANDO
Nel Trovator, che dai giardini move
Notturno il canto, d'un rivale a dritto
Ei teme.

FAMILIARI
Dalle gravi
Palpebre il sonno a discacciar, la vera
Storia ci narra di Garzia, germano
Al nostro Conte.

FERRANDO
La dirņ: venite intorno a me.

I Familiari eseguiscono

ARMIGERI
accostandosi pur essi
Noi pure...

FAMILIARI
Udite, udite.

Tutti accerchiano Ferrando

English Libretto or Translation:

FERRANDO
Look sharp there! The Count
must be served with vigilance;
sometimes, near the house of his beloved
he spends whole nights.

MEN
Jealousy's fierce serpents
are writhing in his breast.

FERRANDO
In the Troubadour, whose song
rises at night from the gardens,
he rightly fears a rival.

MEN
To drive off the sleep
that hangs heavy on our eyelids,
tell us the real story of Garzia,
our Count's brother.

FERRANDO
I'll tell you; gather around me.

OTHERS
We, too... Listen then.
