Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

(Anne walks to Tom)

TOM
(Confused)
Anne! here!

ANNE
And Tom, such splendour!

TOM
Leave pretences, Anne. Ask me! accuse me!

ANNE
Tom, no.

TOM
Denounce me to the world and go.

ANNE
Tom, no!

TOM
Return to your home, forget in your senses
what, senseless, you pursue.

ANNE
Do you return?

TOM
I!

ANNE
Then how shall I go?

TOM
You must!

(Aside)

Oh wilful powers, pummel to dust
and drive into the void one thought: return!.

ANNE
(Aside)
Assist me, heaven, since love
I must to calm his raging heart,
his eyes that burn.

TOM
Listen to me, for I know London well.
Here virtue is a day coquette,
for what night hides,
it can forget.
And virtue is, till gallants talk,
and tell!.
Oh Anne!
That is the air we breathe.
Go home!
'Tis wisdom here to be afraid.

ANNE
How should I fear,
who have your aid
and all my love for you beside, dear Tom.

TOM
My aid? My aid!
London has done all that it can with me.
Unworthy am l, less than weak.
Go back!

ANNE
Let worthiness.
So you still love, reside in that.

TOM
Oh Anne!

(Baba appears)
