Ho capito, signor sì!, Masetto's aria from Don Giovanni

Ho capito, signor sì!		Oh yes, I understand, sir!
Chino il capo e me ne vo.	I bow my head and go.
Giacch´ piace a voi così,	Since you will it so,
Altre repliche non fo.		I won't say anything.
Cavalier voi siete già.		You're a gentleman,
Dubitar non posso affé;		Of that I'm in no doubt, indeed:
Me lo dice la bontà		That's clear from the gracious favour
Che volete aver per me.		You bestow on me.
Bricconaccia, malandrina!	Wanton hussy!
Fosti ognor la mia ruina!	You've undone me!
Vengo, vengo!			I'm coming! I'm coming!
Resta, resta.			Stay then!
È una cosa molto onesta!	There's a fine thing!
Faccia il nostro cavaliere	Let my lord make
cavaliera ancora te. 		A lady of you!
