Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

Unulfo
Massime così indegne,
consigli così re tu porgi, o duca,
a chi sostien la maestà reale?

Garibaldo
Lascia che chi è tiranno opri da tale.

Unulfo
Vorrai? -

Garibaldo
Sì, che spergiuro
tradisca la sua fè.

Unulfo
Vorrai? -

Garibaldo
Che impuro
insidi l'onestà.

Unulfo
Vorrai? -

Garibaldo
Che crudo
con massime spietate, ingiuste ed empie -

Unulfo
Sparga il sangue Reale?

English Libretto or Translation:

Unulfo
Dost thou, o Duke, preach such unworthy
maxims, whisper such guilty counsels in his
ears, to whom `tis giv`n to hear majestick way?

Garibaldo
Yes, for I `d have the man,
who is a tyrant, like a tyrant act.

Unulfo
And would you? –

Garibaldo
Ay, I would have him perjur`d, to a proverb,
and fam`d for violation of his faith.

Unulfo
But would you? –

Garibaldo
Would? - I would havem him, by impurest
methods, lay snares for honesty, and stain it fouly.

Unulfo
Would you? –
