Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

QUICKLY
ritornando
Cavaliero,
Voi credeste due donne così grulle,
Così citrulle,
Da darsi anima e corpo all'Avversiero,
Per un uom vecchio, sudicio ed obeso...

MEG, QUICKLY
Con quella testa calva …

ALICE, MEG, QUICKLY
E con quel peso!

FORD
Parlano chiaro.

FALSTAFF
Incomincio ad accorgermi
D'esser stato un somaro.

ALICE
Un cervo.

FORD
Un bue.

TUTTI
ridendo
Ah! Ah!

FORD
E un mostro raro!

English Libretto or Translation:


QUICKLY
returning
Cavaliero,
You believed two women so grully,
So citrulle,
To give body and soul to the adversary,
For an old man, dirty and obese ...

MEG, QUICKLY
With that bald head ...

ALICE, MEG , QUICKLY
And with that weight!

FORD
They speak clearly.

FALSTAFF I
begin to realize
that I was a donkey.

ALICE
A deer.

FORD
An ox.

EVERYONE
laughing
! Ah!

FORD
And a rare monster!
