Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

DES GRIEUX
à lui-même, joyeusement
Puisse du bonheur où j'aspire,
le jour se lever souriant!
Entre la servante.
Que nous veut-on?

LA SERVANTE
C'est l'heure du souper, Monsieur.

DES GRIEUX
C'est vrai pourtant. Et je n'ai pas encor porté
ma lettre.

MANON
Eh bien, va la porter.

DES GRIEUX
Manon...

MANON
Après?

DES GRIEUX
Je t'aime! je t'adore!
Et toi, dis, m'aimes-tu?

MANON
Oui, mon cher Chevalier, je t'aime!

DES GRIEUX
Tu devrais, en ce cas, me promettre...

MANON
Quoi ?

DES GRIEUX
Rien du tout, je vais porter ma lettre.
Il sort, laissant Manon seule.

English Libretto or Translation:

DES GRIEUX
to himself, happily
May tomorrow look favourably upon
the happiness I long for!
The servant enters.
What does someone want now?

SERVANT
It's time for supper, Monsieur.

DES GRIEUX
That's right, isn't it. And I still haven't
delivered my letter.

MANON
Well then, go take it.

DES GRIEUX
Manon...

MANON
What now?

DES GRIEUX
I love you! I adore you!
And you, tell me, do you love me?

MANON
Yes, my dear Chevalier, I love you!

DES GRIEUX
Because of that you should promise me...

MANON
What?

DES GRIEUX
Nothing at all, I'll deliver my letter.
He goes out, leaving Manon alone.
