Caro mio druck und schluck (1789) K571

My dear, Squeeze and sip

Konstanze:
Caro mio Squeeze and Sip,
Caro mio Sip and Squeeze,
Ti lascio, oh Dio, round as a ball,
Che affano! Half an ounce’s no pound.
Quello l’adira,
We can do nothing about it,
Caro Cobotchi,
Pietà, it’s eight already,
Un pò di carità,
Or else we’ll sh . . .! Ah!
Mozart
Cara mia bagatellerl,
Io parto, tu resti, Pointy-nose,
Oh Dio! tu resti, Pointy-nose,
Che pena! che tormento!
When it rains, it’s wet.
Quello l’adira,
We can do nothing about it,
Caro Cobotchi!
Pietà, it’s eight already,
Un pò di carità,
Or else we’ll sh - - -! Ah!
First Friend:
Perfidi! Barbari! Belui! Mostri!
Tiranni, scoundrel, rabble,
Scum! Scum!
Vedrete, you’ll sh . . . in your pants.
Tacci, tacci! Dumma tacci, a te tacci,
A te lacci! lacci! tacci! lacci! tacci!
Al diavolo, ragamuffins!
I’ll wring your neck yet.
Son risoluto,
I want some snuff.
Second Friend:
Amico, don’t get so upset,
Eh quel ch’è stato is done.
A me taci? a me laci?
Lacci! lacci! tacci!, lacci! tacci! lacci?
Pietà, pietà di me,
The fleas are biting me already
