Madamina, Il Catalogo E Questo

Italian:

Madamina, il catalogo è questo Delle belle che amò il padron mio; un catalogo egli è che ho fatt'io; Osservate, leggete con me

In Italia seicento e quaranta; In Alemagna[2] duecento e trentuna; Cento in Francia, in Turchia novantuna; Ma in Ispagna son già mille e tre

V'han fra queste contadine, Cameriere, cittadine, V'han contesse, baronesse, Marchesane, principesse. E v'han donne d'ogni grado, D'ogni forma, d'ogni età

Nella bionda egli ha l'usanza Di lodar la gentilezza, Nella bruna la costanza, Nella bianca la dolcezza

Vuol d'inverno la grassotta, Vuol d'estate la magrotta; È la grande maestosa, La piccina è ognor vezzosa

Delle vecchie fa conquista Pel piacer di porle in lista; Sua passion predominante È la giovin principiante

Non si picca - se sia ricca, Se sia brutta, se sia bella; Purché porti la gonnella, Voi sapete quel che fa

English:

My dear lady, this is the list Of the beauties my master has loved, A list which I have compiled. Observe, read along with me.

In Italy, six hundred and forty; In Germany, two hundred and thirty-one; A hundred in France; in Turkey, ninety-one; But in Spain already one thousand and three.

Among these are peasant girls, Maidservants, city girls, Countesses, baronesses, Marchionesses, princesses, Women of every rank, Every shape, every age

With blondes it is his habit To praise their kindness; In brunettes, their faithfulness; In the white-haired, their sweetness

In winter he likes fat ones. In summer he likes thin ones. He calls the tall ones majestic. The little ones are always charming

He seduces the old ones For the pleasure of adding to the list. His greatest favorite Is the young beginner

It doesn't matter if she's rich, Ugly or beautiful; If she wears a skirt, You know what he does
