Vi parlo all’olandese

Language: Italian (Italiano)

Vi parlo all’olandese,
da galantuom favello:
il sì dev’esser quello, 
dev’esser quello il no.

(A Polidoro che l’interrompe)
Oh, infamia di Partenope,
o taci o ch’io cospetto...
(Ah, merita rispetto:
è commensale, è amico; 
sdegnarmi, oh Dio, non so.)

(A Milord)
Ella avrà un padre in me,
e da un crudel nemico
sì la difenderò. 

(A Polidoro che l’interrompe)
O Italia miserabile
se fosser tutti simili...
Non posso più resistere,
son pieno di furore...
Bestia di te peggiore
nel mondo no, non v’è.
