Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

AIDA
Ah! Pietà, pietà! pietà!
Padre, a costoro schiava non sono...
Non maledirmi... non imprecarmi;
Ancor tua figlia potrai chiamarmi,
Della mia patria degna sarò.

AMONASRO
Pensa che un popolo, vinto, straziato,
Per te soltanto risorger può...

AIDA
O patria! o patria, quanto mi costi!

AMONASRO
Coraggia! ei giunge... là tutto udrò.

Si nasconde fra i palmizi

English Libretto or Translation:

AIDA
Ah! Have mercy, have mercy!
Father, I am not their slave...
Do not curse me… do not revile me:
you will still be able to call me daughter,
I will be worthy of my native land.

AMONASRO
Remember that a people, conquered and tormented,
through you alone can rise again

AIDA
Oh my country, what you cost me!

AMONASRO
Courage! He is coming from there I shall hear everything.

He conceals himself among the palm?trees.
