Tra voi, belle, brune e bionde, Des Grieux's aria from Manon Lescaut

Tra voi, belle, brune e bionde
si nasconde
giovinetta
vaga e vezzosa
dal labbro rosa
che m’aspetta?
Sei tu bionda stella?
Dillo a me!
Palesatemi il destino
e il divino
viso ardente
che m’innamori,
ch’io vegga e adori
eternamente!

Tra voi, belle, brune e bionde
si nasconde
giovinetta
vaga e vezzosa
dal labbro rosa
che m’aspetta?
Sei tu, bruna snella?
Dillo a me!
