Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

BRÉTIGNY
Répondez-moi, Guillot!

GUILLOT
Jamais! Mais rira bien qui rira le dernier!

BRÉTIGNY
Monsieur de Morfontaine, vous allez tout me dire!

GUILLOT
À vous, mon ami, rien!
se tournant vers Manon
Mais à vous, ô ma Reine!

BRÉTIGNY
Plaît-il ?

GUILLOT
Eh bien! oui... L'Opéra que vous lui refusiez...
Il sera dans un instant... ici.

BRÉTIGNY
Je dois rendre les armes!
(à Manon)

MANON
Oh! non!

BRÉTIGNY
On dirait que des larmes...

MANON
Folie!

GUILLOT
Allons, Manon,
approchez, s'il vous plaît,
on va danser pour vous notre nouveau ballet!
à Lescaut
Lescaut, venez!

LESCAUT
Je suis là pour vous plaire.

GUILLOT
Veillez... le tout est à mes frais,
à ce qu'on donne
à boire au populaire!
Combien?

LESCAUT
Nous compterons après!
Il prend la bourse et sort.

English Libretto or Translation:

BRÉTIGNY
Answer me, Guillot!

GUILLOT
Never! He laughs best who laughs last!

BRÉTIGNY
Monsieur de Morfontaine, you must tell me
everything!

GUILLOT
To you, my friend, nothing at all!
turning to Manon
But to you, my Queen, everything!

BRÉTIGNY
I beg your pardon?

GUILLOT
All right then, yes. The Opéra performance
that you refused her... they'll be here very shortly.

BRÉTIGNY
I'm forced to admit defeat!
to Manon
You're sad!

MANON
Oh! no!

BRÉTIGNY
One might even say that tears...

MANON
Absurd!

GUILLOT
Come now, Manon,
come closer, if you please,
we're going to dance our latest ballet.
to Lescaut
Lescaut, come here!

LESCAUT
I'm here to do anything to please you.

GUILLOT
All of this is at my own expense.
You be in charge of the drinks
I'm offering to all of these people!
How much will you want to take?

LESCAUT
We'll settle accounts afterwards!
He takes the purse and goes off.
