Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

AIDA
entra cautamente
Qui Radamès verrà!... Che vorrà dirmi?
Io tremo... Ah! se tu vieni
A recarmi, o crudel, l'ultimo addio,
Del Nilo i cupi vortici
Mi daran tomba... e pace forse, e oblio.

O patria mia, mai più ti revedrò!
O cieli azzurri, o dolci aure native,
Dove sereno il nio mattin brillò,
O verdi colli, o profumate rive,
O patria mia, mai più ti revedrò!
O fresche valli, o queto asil beato,
Che un dì promesso dall'amor mi fu;
Or che d'amore il sogno è dileguato,
O patria mia, non ti vedrò mai più!

English Libretto or Translation:

AIDA
approaching cautiously
Radamès is coming here!… What can he want to say to me?
I tremble... Ah! If you should come,
oh cruel one, to bid me a last farewell,
the dark swirling waters of the Nile
shall be my grave... and bring me peace, perhaps, and oblivion.

Oh my homeland, I shall never see you again!
Oh blue skies, oh soft native breezes,
where the light of my youth shone in tranquillity;
oh green hills, perfumed shores,
oh my homeland, I shall never see you again!
Oh cool valleys, oh blessed, tranquil refuge
which once was promised me by love;
now that the dream of love has faded,
oh my homeland, I shall never see you again!
