Translation into English by Leonora McClernan (added 1997-11-04)
Ah, chi mi dice mai, Donna Elvira's aria from Don Giovanni

Ah, chi mi dice mai		Who will ever tell me
Quel barbaro dov'e'		Where that barbarian/scoundrel is
Che per mio scorno amai		For whom I loved and disgraced myself
Che mi manco' di fe?		And to me was unfaithful
Ah, se ritrovo l'empio		Ah, if I find again that evil man
E a me non torna ancor		And he still will not come back to me,
Vo' farne orrendo scempio	I will destroy him
Gli vo' cavare il cor.		I will rip his heart out.
