Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

Il giuoco di Lescaut cogli Studenti è animatissimo.
Edmondo corre al fondo, spiando ancora Geronte.


EDMONDO
avanzandosi
Vecchietto amabile,
incipriato Pluton sei tu!
La tua Proserpina
di resisterti forse avrà virtù?
Entra Des Grieux pensieroso.
Edmondo gli si avvicina, poi, battendogli sulla spalla:

Cavaliere, te la fanno!

DES GRIEUX
con sorpresa
Che vuoi dir?!

EDMONDO
ironicamente
Quel fior dolcissimo
che olezzava poco fa,
dal suo stel divelto, povero fior,
fra poco appassirà!
La tua fanciulla, la tua colomba
or vola, or vola:
Del postiglion suona la tromba …
Via, ti consola:
Un vecchio la rapisce!

DES GRIEUX
Davvero?!

EDMONDO
Impallidisci?
Per Dio, la cosa è seria!

DES DRIEUX
Qui l'attendo, capisci?

EDMONDO
Siamo a buon punto?!

DES GRIEUX
Salvami!

EDMONDO
Salvarti? La partenza impedir?
Tentiam! … Senti! Forse ti salvo …
Del giuoco morse all'amo
il soldato laggiù!

DES GRIEUX
E il vecchio?

EDMONDO
Il vecchio? Oh,
l'avrà da far con me!

English Libretto or Translation:

The game of Lescaut with the Students is very animated.
Edmondo runs to the bottom, spying on Geronte again.

EDMONDO
advancing
Lovable vecchietto,
Pluton is powdered you!
Your Proserpina
to resist you will perhaps have virtue?
Enter Des Grieux thoughtfully.
Edmondo approaches him, then, beating him on the shoulder:
Knight, they'll do it!

DES GRIEUX
with surprise
What do you mean ?!

EDMONDO
ironically
That sweet flower
that it smelled a little while ago,
from his stel torn, poor flower,
soon will wither!
Your maiden, your dove
or fly, or fly:
Of the postiglion he plays the trumpet ...
Way, it comforts you:
An old man abducts her!

DES GRIEUX
Really?!

EDMONDO
Impallidisci?
For God, the thing is serious!

DES DRIEUX
Here I await you, do you understand?

EDMONDO
We're at a good point?!

DES GRIEUX
Save me!

EDMONDO
Save? The departure will prevent?
Tentiam! ... Listen! Maybe I'll save you ...
Of the game he bit on the hook
the soldier over there!

DES GRIEUX
And the old man?

EDMONDO
The old? Oh,
he will have to do with me!
