Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

BABA
¡...ever!

(She begins to clean oneself)

Sold! annoyed! I've caught you thieving!
If you dare touch a thing
then beware my reckoning.
Be off, be gone, desist:
I, Baba, must insist upon your leaving.

CROWD
It's Baba, his wife. It passes believing.

(Nick´s and Tom's voices are listened out of scene)

TOM, NICK
Old wives for sale!
Stale wives, prim wives,
silly and grim wives!
Old wives for sale!
