Frisch zum Kampfe, Pedrillo's aria from Die Entf├╝hrung aus dem Serail

Frisch zum Kampfe, frisch zum Streite!	Forward to the fray! Into battle!
Nur ein feiger Tropf verzagt.		Only faint-hearts are afraid.
Sollt' ich zittern, sollt' ich zagen?	Should I tremble, should I waver?
Nicht mein Leben mutig wagen?		Should I not boldly risk my life?
Nein, ach nein, es sei gewagt!		No, no, let me be resolute!
Nur ein feiger Tropf verzagt.		Only faint-hearts are afraid.
Frisch zum Kampfe! Frisch zum Streite!	Forward to the fray! Into battle!
