Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

MADDALENA
s'avvicina a Bersi e la calma sorridendo
Soffoco, moro tutta chiusa
in busto stretto
a squame ombra di moro
o in un corsetto, come s'usa
in seta di nakara!

BERSI
Il tuo corsetto è cosa rara!

English Libretto or Translation:

MAGDALENE
he approaches Bersi and calms smiling
I suffocate, dark all closed
in tight bust
with dark shadow scales
or in a corset, as usual
in nakara silk!

BERSI
Your corset is rare!
