Testo vesti la giubba - michael bolton

(from Leoncavallo's I Pagliacci)



[Canio
and his wife
and their troupe perform adulterous comedies in their travelling shows. This time
though
life imitates art. Canio has just been warned that Nedda is in the arms of another man. When Canio arrives
the man is gone. Tell me his name! He threatens. Just at that moment
they announce
It's show time!
]



Recitar!...mentre preso dal delirio

non so piu quel che dico e quel che faccio!

Eppur...e d'uopa...sforzati!

Bah
se tu forse un uom?

Tu se' Pagliaccio!

Vesti la giubba e la faccia infarina.

La gente paga e rider vuole qua.

E se Arlecchin t'invola Colombina


ridi
Pagliaccio...e ognun applaudira!

Tramuta in lazzi lo spasmo ed il pianto;

in una smorfia il singhiozzo e'l dolor...
/>
Ridi Pagliaccio
sul tuo amore infranto!

Ridi del duol che t'avvelena il cor!





[Translation:]



On With The Show



Go on stage
while I'm nearly delirious?

I don't know what I'm saying or what I'm doing!

And yet
chin up! I'll try harder.

Bah
you think you're a man?

You're just a clown!

On with the show
man
and put on your white-face.

The people pay you and you must make them laugh.

And if Harlequin should steal your Columbine


laugh
you're Pagliaccio
and the world will clap for you!

Turn into banter all your pain and sorrow


and with your clown's face hide grief and distress...

Laugh loud
Pagliaccio
forget all your troubles


Laugh off the pain that so empoisons your heart.
