Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

TADDEO
Grazie: obbligato.
Ho un gran peso sulla testa;
In quest'abito m'imbroglio.
Se vi par la scusa onesta,
Kaimakan esser non voglio,
E ringrazio il mio Signore
Dell'onore che mi fa.
(Egli sbuffa!...Ohimè!...Che occhiate!)
Compatitemi...ascoltatemi...
(Spiritar costui mi fa.
Qua bisogna fare un conto:
Se ricuso...il palo è pronto.
E se accetto?...è mio dovere
Di portargli candeliere.
Ah! Taddeo, che bivio è questo!
Ma quel palo?... Che ho da far?)
Kaimakan, Signor, io resto.
Non vi voglio disgustar.

CORO
Viva il grande Kaimakan,
Protettor de' Musulman.

TADDEO
Quanti inchini!...quanti onori!...
Mille grazie,miei Signori,
Non vi state a incomodar.
Per far tutto quel che posso,
Signor mio, col basto indosso,
Alla degna mia nipote
Or mi vado a presentar.
(Ah! Taddeo! Quant'era meglio
Che tu andassi in fondo al mar.)

CORO
Viva il grande Kaimakan,
Protettor de' Mussulman.

TADDEO
Grazie, quanti onori!...
Alla degna mia nipote
Or mi vado a presentar.

English Libretto or Translation:

TADDEO
Thanks: obliged.
I have a great weight on my head;
In this habit I deceive myself.
If the honest excuse
Kaimakan, I do not want to,
And I thank my Lord
Of the honor that makes me.
(He snorts! ... Alas! ... What looks!)
Pity me ... listen to me ...
(Spiritarui makes me.
Here we need to make an account:
If I re-use ... the stake is ready.
What if I accept? ... it's my duty
To bring him candlestick.
Ah! Taddeo, what a fork is this!
But that pole? ... What do I have to do?)
Kaimakan, Mr., I stay.
I do not want to disgust you.

CHOIR
Long live the great Kaimakan,
Protector of Musulman.

TADDEO
How many bows! ... how many honors! ...
Many thanks, my Lords,
You do not have to interrupt.
To do everything I can,
My lord, with my pack, I'm wearing
To my worthy niece
Now I'm going to introduce myself.
(Ah! Taddeo! How much better
That you go to the bottom of the sea.)

CHOIR
Long live the great Kaimakan,
Protector of Mussulman.

TADDEO
Thank you, how many honors! ...
To my worthy niece
Now I'm going to introduce myself.
