Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

FALSTAFF
guardandosi e toccandosi l'addome
Quest'è il mio regno.
Lo ingrandirò.
Ma è tempo d'assottigliar l'ingegno.

BARDOLFO, PISTOLA
Assottigliam.

Tutti e tre in crocchio.

FALSTAFF
V'è noto un tal, qui del paese
che ha nome Ford?

BARDOLFO
Si.

PISTOLA
Si.

FALSTAFF
Quell'uomo è un gran borghese...

PISTOLA
Più liberal d'un Creso.

BARDOLFO
E'un Lord!

FALSTAFF
Sua moglie è bella.

PISTOLA
E tien lo scrigno.

English Libretto or Translation:

FALSTAFF
looking and touching the abdomen
This is my kingdom.
I will enlarge it.
But it is time to thinen the ingenuity.

BARDOLFO, PISTOLA
Thin.

All three in a group.

FALSTAFF Is there
a known man, here in the village
named Ford?

BARDOLPH

Yes.

PISTOLA
Yes.

FALSTAFF
That man is a great bourgeois ...

PISTOLA
More liberal than a Croesus.

BARDOLFO
Is a
Lord!

FALSTAFF
His wife is beautiful.


PISTOLA
And holds the casket.
