Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

CANIO
affettando cortesia e togliendosi il berretto con un gesto comico
Mi accordan di parlar?

LA FOLLA
ridendo
Ah! ah! ah! ah! ah! ah!
Con lui si dee cedere,
tacere ed ascoltar!

CANIO
Un grande spettacolo a ventitré ore
prepara il vostr'umile e buon servitore!
riverenza
Vedrete le smanie del bravo Pagliaccio;
e com'ei si vendica e tende un bel laccio...
Vedrete di Tonio tremar la carcassa,
e quale matassa d'intrighi ordirà.
Venite, onorateci signori e signore.
A ventitré ore! A ventitré ore!

LA FOLLA
Verremo, e tu serbaci
il tuo buon umore.
A ventitré ore!

CANIO
A ventitré ore!

LA FOLLA
A ventitré ore!
Verremo!

English Libretto or Translation:

CANIO
with affected courtesy, taking off his hat with a comic gesture
May I be allowed to speak?

ALL
laughing
Ha, ha! We must give in;
be quiet and listen.

CANIO
Your humble
and obedient servant
has prepared a grand performance
for eleven o'clock tonight.
makes a comic bow
You will see the troubles
of poor Pagliaccio,
and how he's revenged
by a clever trap.
You will see Tonio's
big bulk tremble
and what a tangled
Skein of intrigue he'll devise.
Come and honour us,
ladies and gentlemen,
tonight at eleven!

VILLAGERS
We'll come, and you treat us
to your humour.
Tonight at eleven!
