Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

MANON
Un mot encore!...
A-t-il souffert de son absence?
Vous a-t-il dit parfois son nom?

LE COMTE
Ses larmes coulaient en silence.

MANON
L'a-t-il maudite, en pleurant?

LE COMTE
Non!

MANON
Vous a-t-il dit que la parjure
l'avait aimé?

LE COMTE
Son cœur guéri de sa blessure,
s'est refermé!

MANON
Mais depuis?

LE COMTE
Il a fait ainsi que votre amie,
ce que l'on doit faire ici-bas,
quand on est sage, n'est-ce pas?
On oublie!

English Libretto or Translation:

MANON
One more word!...
Has he suffered because of her absence?
Does he sometimes mention her name?

COUNT
He shed his tears in silence.

MANON
When he wept, did he curse her?

COUNT
No!

MANON
Does he tell you that the girl who betrayed
him had loved him?

COUNT
Once his heart had recovered from its wounds,
it sealed itself up!

MANON
But then?

COUNT
He behaved as your friend,
and as all of here on earth should behave
if one is wise, isn't it true?
He forgot!
