Recitativo

DON ALFONSO
Si può sapere un poco
La cagion di quel riso?

GUGLIELMO
Oh cospettaccio!
Non vi pare che abbiam giusta ragione,
Il mio caro padrone?

FERRANDO
scherzando
Quanto pagar volete,
E a monte è la scommessa?

GUGLIELMO
scherzando
Pagate la metà.

FERRANDO
come sopra
Pagate solo
Ventiquattro zecchini.

DON ALFONSO
Poveri innocentini!
Venite qua, vi voglio
Porre il ditino in bocca!

GUGLIELMO
E avete ancora
Coraggio di fiatar?

DON ALFONSO
Avanti sera
Ci parlerem.

FERRANDO
Quando volete.

DON ALFONSO
Intanto,
Silenzio e ubbidienza
Fino a doman mattina.

GUGLIELMO
Siam soldati, e amiam la disciplina.

DON ALFONSO
Orbene, andate un poco
Ad attendermi entrambi in giardinetto,
Colà vi manderò gli ordini miei.

GUGLIELMO
Ed oggi non si mangia?

FERRANDO
Cosa serve?
A battaglia finita
Fia la cena per noi più saporita.

English Libretto or Translation:

Recitative

DON ALFONSO
And may I ask to know
The reason for this laughter?

GUGLIELMO
Oh what a face!
Don't you think, my dear sir,
That we have good cause?

FERRANDO
mockingly
How much will you pay,
And we'll drop our wager?

GUGLIELMO
mockingly
Pay half.

FERRANDO
Well let you off with twenty?four sequins.

DON ALFONSO
Poor little innocents!
Come here; I'll give you
My little finger to suck on.

GUGLIELMO
And you still have
The courage to go on?

DON ALFONSO
Before evening
We'll talk of this.

FERRANDO
Whenever you like.

DON ALFONSO
Meanwhile
Silence and obedience.
Until tomorrow morning.

GUGLIELMO
We are soldiers
And accept discipline.

DON ALFONSO
Very well: both of you go
And wait for me in the garden:
There I'll give you your orders.

GUGLIELMO
But don't we eat today?

FERRANDO
What's it matter?
When the battle's over
Our supper will taste the better.
