MASETTO
Ho capito, signor sì!
Chino il capo e me ne vo.
Giacch´ piace a voi così,
Altre repliche non fo.
Cavalier voi siete già.
Dubitar non posso affé;
Me lo dice la bontà
Che volete aver per me.
a Zerlina, a parte
Bricconaccia, malandrina!
Fosti ognor la mia ruina!
a Leporello, che lo vuol condur seco
Vengo, vengo!
a Zerlina
Resta, resta.
È una cosa molto onesta!
Faccia il nostro cavaliere
cavaliera ancora te.

English Libretto or Translation:

MASETTO
Oh of course, Sir, I perceive, I perceive,
At your wish I'm deaf and dumb,
I will humbly take my leave,
Ne'er to common sense succumb.
No, no, no, nevermore.
You're a gentleman, I know,
That to doubt were wrong indeed,
Vulgar loves you can't allow, gentle wishes to impede.
aside to Zerlina
By the Powers, I will shun thee,
Oh, thou flirt, thou hast undone me,
to Leporello, who wants to lead him off
Yes, directly.
to Zerlina
Stay behind here!
'Tis not what I thought to find here!
Always trust a noble's honour,
This should be the vassal's creed.
