Dulcamara

Duet - Adina and Nemorino


Nemmy:
  
My darling, my dearest, you're helpless, you see.
You'll feel the same passion as I, in fact, soon.
Oh, don't be alarmed when your heart turns to me.
I promise I'll catch you, beloved, when you swoon. 
  
Adina:
 
I've mocked and I've mocked this contemptible bore, 
But now things have changed and I find it's a jolt
To think I've affection developing for
This simple but wealthy remarkable dolt.
 
Both:
  
Oh, Love, oh, Romance, oh, Desire, all agree,
We're helpless to act on what-ever you say.
We're all simple slaves with no hope to be free.
You speak and, with pleasure or pain, we obey.  

Nemmy:

Adina, I see that you're under my spell.
The past is forgotten, the future will shine.
Embrace me and love me and all will be well.
Oh, hold me beloved, agree to be mine!

Adina:

Oh, Nemmy, accept me I long to be yours.
At last I see clearly you're all that I need.
I barely control my poor heart as it soars.
Oh, tell me your will, love, I'll taking your lead.

Both:

Oh, Love, oh, Romance, oh, Desire, all agree,
We're helpless to act on what-ever you say.
We're all simple slaves with no hope to be free.
You speak and, with pleasure or pain, we obey.
