Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

MASETTO
Ahi! ahi! la testa mia!
Ahi, ahi! le spalle e il petto!

ZERLINA
Di sentire mi parve
la voce di Masetto!

MASETTO
O Dio, Zerlina mia,
soccorso!

ZERLINA
Cosa è stato?

MASETTO
L'iniquo, il scellerato
mi ruppe l'ossa e i nervi.

ZERLINA
Oh poveretta me! Chi?

MASETTO
Leporello!
o qualche diavol che somiglia a lui!

ZERLINA
Crudel, non tel diss'io
che con questa tua pazza gelosia
ti ridurresti a qualche brutto passo?
Dove ti duole?

MASETTO
Qui.

ZERLINA
E poi?

MASETTO
Qui, e ancora qui!

ZERLINA
E poi non ti duol altro?

MASETTO
Duolmi un poco
questo pie', questo braccio, e questa mano.

English Libretto or Translation:

MASETTO
crying out
Oh, oh , my head is broken,
Oh, oh, my backbone, my shoulder.

ZERLINA
with a lantern
Did I hear some speaking?
I thought it was Masetto!

MASETTO
Oh, dear Zerlina,
Zerlina dearest, come help me!

ZERLINA
What has happen'd?

MASETTO
The villain, the base assassin
Has left no bone unbroken.

ZERLINA
Oh, dear, what can I do! Who?

MASETTO
Leporello, or else some friend, that looked exactly like him.

ZERLINA
The wretch! Did I not tell you that your jealous
And most unruly temper would surely bring you
Ere long into some trouble?
Where does it hurt you?

MASETTO
Here.

ZERLINA
Besides, where?

MASETTO
Here and also here.

ZERLINA
Is nothing else the matter?

MASETTO
Yes, there's something with this foot,
And this elbow, I cannot bend it.
