Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

LEPORELLO
Io deggio ad ogni patto
per sempre abbandonar questo bel matto...
Eccolo qui: guardate
con qual indifferenza se ne viene!

DON GIOVANNI
Oh, Leporello mio! va tutto bene.

LEPORELLO
Don Giovannino mio! va tutto male.

DON GIOVANNI
Come va tutto male?

LEPORELLO
Vado a casa,
come voi m'ordinaste,
con tutta quella gente.

DON GIOVANNI
Bravo!

LEPORELLO
A forza di chiacchiere, di vezzi e di bugie,
ch'ho imparato sì bene a star con voi,
cerco d'intrattenerli...

DON GIOVANNI
Bravo!

LEPORELLO
Dico
mille cose a Masetto per placarlo,
per trargli dal pensier la gelosia.

DON GIOVANNI
Bravo, in coscienza mia!

LEPORELLO
Faccio che bevano
e gli uomini e le donne.
Son già mezzo ubbriachi.
Altri canta, altri scherza,
altri seguita a ber. In sul più bello,
chi credete che capiti?

DON GIOVANNI
Zerlina.

LEPORELLO
Bravo! E con lei chi viene?

DON GIOVANNI
Donna Elvira!

LEPORELLO
Bravo! E disse di voi?

DON GIOVANNI
Tutto quel mal che in bocca le venìa.

LEPORELLO
Bravo, in coscienza mia!

DON GIOVANNI
E tu, cosa facesti?

LEPORELLO
Tacqui.

DON GIOVANNI
Ed ella?

LEPORELLO
Seguì a gridar.

DON GIOVANNI
E tu?

LEPORELLO
Quando mi parve
che già fosse sfogata, dolcemente
fuor dell'orto la trassì, e con bell'arte
chiusa la porta a chiave io di là mi cavai,
e sulla via soletta la lasciai.

DON GIOVANNI
Bravo, bravo, arcibravo!
L'affar non può andar meglio. Incominciasti,
io saprò terminar. Troppo mi premono
queste contadinotte;
le voglio divertir finchè vien notte.

English Libretto or Translation:

LEPORELLO
I'll stay with him no longer,
I will not have this madman for a master!
See, there he comes, look at him,
So cool, just as if nothing e'er had happened.

DON GIOVANNI
Well, how are matters going, my Leporello?

LEPORELLO
Much worse they scarcely could be, my gay young master.

DON GIOVANNI
Worse say'st thou? How can that be?

LEPORELLO
To your palace I took all those peasants,
According to your orders.

DON GIOVANNI
Bravo!

LEPORELLO
By dint of persuasion, much flatt'ry and some lying,
Which your shining example well has taught me,
I for a while detain'd them...

DON GIOVANNI
Bravo!

LEPORELLO
Then I had some trouble to quiet that Masetto,
No easy task to soothe his jealous anger.

DON GIOVANNI
Bravo! Nothing could be better.

LEPORELLO
Well, there I feasted them, the wine was flowing freely,
They regal'd themselves nobly,
Some were singing, some were dancing,
Some did nothing but drink;
All on a sudden, can you guess who burst in on us?

DON GIOVANNI
Zerlina!

LEPORELLO
Bravo! Now guess who was with her?

DON GIOVANNI
Why, Elvira!

LEPORELLO
Just, so, and speaking of you...

DON GIOVANNI
As of a wretch hanging were too good for.

LEPORELLO
Shrewdly guess'd, nothing could be better.

DON GIOVANNI
What said you to her raving?

LEPORELLO
Nothing.

DON GIOVANNI
She scolded?

LEPORELLO
Yes, that she did.

DON GIOVANNI
And you?

LEPORELLO
When it appear'd
As if the storm were subsiding,
From the house I gently led her conversing,
And there I left her, lock'd fast the door,
Put the key into my pocket,
Outside she may pursue her lamentations.

DON GIOVANNI
Leporello, thou'rt a genius!
'Twas managed to perfection.
Soon I will finish what so well you've begun.
But now these country-girls with their gay sports invite me,
We will return to them. I'll now delight me.
