Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

FERRANDO
Di due figli vivea padre beato
Il buon Conte di Luna:
Fida nutrice del secondo nato
Dormia presso la cuna.
Sul romper dell'aurora un bel mattino
Ella dischiude i rai;
E chi trova d'accanto a quel bambino?

CORO
Chi?... Favella... Chi mai?

English Libretto or Translation:

FERRANDO
There lived a happy father of two sons,
the good Count di Luna.
The second boy's faithful nurse
slept next to his cradle.
As dawn was breaking one fine morning,
she opened her eyes and whom did she find
next to that baby?

MEN
Who? Speak ... Who was it?
