Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

FALSTAFF
Quand'ero paggio
Del Duca di Norfolk ero sottile,
Ero un miraggio
Vago, leggero, gentile, gentile.
Quello era il tempo
Del mio verde Aprile,
Quello era il tempo
Del mio lieto Maggio,
Tant'ero smilzo, flessibile e snello
Che avrei guizzato attraverso un anello.

ALICE
Voi mi celiate.
Io temo i vostri inganni.
Temo che amiate …

FALSTAFF
Chi?

ALICE
Meg.

FALSTAFF
Colei? M'è in uggia la sua faccia.

ALICE
Non traditemi, John …

FALSTAFF
Mi par mill'anni
D'avervi fra le braccia.
rincorrendola e tentando di abbracciarla
T'amo …

ALICE
difendendosi
Per carità …

FALSTAFF
la prende attraverso il busto
Vieni!

QUICKLY
dall'antisala gridando
Signora Alice!

FALSTAFF
abbandona Alice e rimane turbato
Chi va là?

QUICKLY
entrando e fingendo agitazione
Signora Alice!

ALICE
Chi c'è?

English Libretto or Translation:

FALSTAFF
When I was a page
of the Duke of Norfolk I was thin,
I was a mirage
Vague, light, gentle, kind.
That was the time
of my green April,
That was the time
Of my happy May,
Tant'ero lean, flexible and slender
That I would have gone through a ring.

ALICE
You hide me.
I fear your deception.
I'm afraid you love ...

FALSTAFF
Who?

ALICE
Meg.

FALSTAFF The one
? His face is in exaggeration.

ALICE
Do not betray me, John ...

FALSTAFF
It's a thousand years
Having you in your arms.
chasing her and trying to embrace her
... I'm defending

ALICE
For charity ...

FALSTAFF
takes her through the bust Come!

QUICKLY
from the antisala shouting Lady Alice!

FALSTAFF
abandons Alice and remains upset Who goes there?

QUICKLY
entering and pretending shaking Lady Alice!

ALICE
Who is there?
