Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

CANIO
riprendendosi ed animandosi a poco a poco
Sperai, tanto il delirio accecato m'aveva,
se non amor, pietà... mercé!
Ed ogni sacrifizio al cor lieto, imponeva,
e fidente credeva
più che in Dio stesso, in te!
Ma il vizio alberga sol ne l'alma tua negletta;
tu viscere non hai... sol legge e'l senso a te!
Va, non merti il mio duol,
o meretrice abbietta,
vo' ne lo sprezzo mio
schiacciarti sotto i piè!!

LA FOLLA
entusiasta
Bravo!

English Libretto or Translation:

CANIO
resuming and gradually becoming excited
I hoped, such was
the blind madness I felt,
if not for love, for pity kindness!
And cheerfully I imposed
every sacrifice on my heart,
and trustingly believed more in you
than in God himself!
But only vice inhabited
your heedless soul;
you have no heart …
you are ruled only by your passions.
Go, you are not worth my grief,
you worthless wretch;
in my contempt I could
crush you beneath my feet!

VILLAGERS
Bravo!
