Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

BABA
I have not run away, dear heart.
Baba is still waiting patiently for her gallant.

(Tom walks to Baba)

TOM
I am with you, dear wife.

BABA
Who was that girl, my life?

TOM
Only a milkmaid, pet,
to whom I was in debt.

(Tom and Baba are going into your home)

VOICES
Baba is here!

PEOPLE
Baba the Turk, Baba the Turk,
before you retire
show thyself once,
Oh grant us our desire!

(Baba takes off the veil showing a black beard)

PEOPLE
Ah, Baba! Baba! Ah!
