Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

ELVINO
si presenta ad Amina vivamente commosso
Ah! perché non posso odiarti,
Infedel, com'io vorrei!
Ah! del tutto ancor non sei
Cancellata dal mio cor.
Possa un altro, ah! possa amarti
Qual t'amò quest'infelice!
Altro voto, o traditrice,
Non temer dal mio dolor.

CORO
Ah! crudel, pria di lasciarla,
Vedi il Conte, al Conte parla.
Ei di rendere è capace
A te pace, a lei l'onor.

English Libretto or Translation:

ELVINO
he introduces himself to Amina, deeply moved
Ah! because I can not hate you,
Infedel, as I would like!
Ah! you are not yet completely
Canceled by my cor.
May another, ah! can love you
What did I love this unhappy!
Another vote, or traitor,
Do not be afraid of my pain.

CHOIR
Ah! cruel, before leaving her,
See the Count, to the Count speaks.
And to make is able
To you peace, to you the honor.
