Sempre in contrasti, Uberto's aria from La Serva Padrona

Sempre in contrasti
con te si sta,
e qua e là;
e su e giù
e sì e no;
or questo basti;
finir si può.
Mache ti pare? ah!
Ho io a crepare?
Signor mio, no.
Però dovrai pur sempre 
piangere la tua disgrazia,
e allor dirai che ben ti sta.
Che dici tu?
Non è così?
Ah! Che! No! Sì, ma così è.
