Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

SUZUKI
svegliandosi di soprassalto
Gia il sole!
si alza, va verso Butterfly e le batte sulla spalla
Cio-cio-san...

BUTTERFLY
si scuote e fidente dice:
Verrà, verrà, vedrai.
vede il bimbo addormentato e lo prende sulle braccia, avviandosi verso la stanza a sinistra

SUZUKI
Salite a riposare, affranta siete
al suo venire... vi chiamerò.

BUTTERFLY
salendo la scaletta
Dormi amor mio, dormi sul mio cor.
Tu se con Dio ed io col mio dolor...
A te irai degli astri d'or.
Bimbo mio dormi!
entra nella camera a sinistra

SUZUKI
mestamente, crollando la testa
Povera Butterfly!

BUTTERFLY
voce un po' lontana
Dormi amor mio, dormi sul mio cor.
voce più lontana
Tu sei con Dio ed io col mio dolor.

SUZUKI
Povera Butterfly!

Si batte lievemente all'uscio d'ingresso.

SUZUKI
Chi sia?

Si batte più forte. Suzuki va ad aprire lo shosi nel fondo.

SUZUKI
grida, per la grande sorpresa
Oh!

English Libretto or Translation:

SUZUKI
Awakening with a start
Gia the sun!
gets up, goes to Butterfly and beats her on the shoulder
Cio-cio-san ...

BUTTERFLY
shakes and fills it says:
It will come, it will come, you will see.
he sees the baby asleep and takes it on his arms, moving towards the room on the left

SUZUKI
Go up to rest, you are frightened
when he comes ... I will call you.

BUTTERFLY
climbing the ladder
Sleep my love, sleep on my heart.
You with God and I with my
sorrow ... To you, I'm aroused by the stars of time.
My baby sleep!
enter the room on the left

SUZUKI
sadly,
Poor Butterfly's head collapsing !

BUTTERFLY
voice a bit 'far
Sleep my love, sleep on my heart.
Farther voice
You are with God and I with my sorrow.

SUZUKI
Poor Butterfly!

It beats lightly at the entrance door.

SUZUKI
Who is it?

It beats faster. Suzuki goes to open the shosi in the bottom.

SUZUKI
shouts, for the big surprise
Oh!
