Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

ERNESTO
(Ah! Mi fa il destin mendico,
perdo colei che adoro,
in chi credevo amico,
ah! discopro un traditor!
D'ogni conforto privo,
misero, a che pur vivo?
Ah! non si dà martoro
egual al mio martor!)

DON PASQUALE
(L'amico è bello e cotto,
in sasso s'è cangiato;
non fiata non fa motto,
l'affoga il crepacuor.
Si roda, gli sta bene,
ha quel che gli conviene.
Impari lo sventato
a fare il bello umor.)

English Libretto or Translation:

ERNESTO
(Ah, he makes me the beggar,
I lose the one I love,
in whom I believed to be a friend,
ah! I will discuss a traitor!
Of all comfort free,
poor, what do I live?
Ah! no martyr is given
egual to my martor!)

DON PASQUALE
(Friend is nice and cooked,
in stone he has changed;
not breathing does not make a motto,
drowns the crepacuor.
He's getting on, he's fine with it,
he has what suits him.
Learn the foiled
to make the beautiful mood.)
