Il mio tesoro, Don Octavio's aria from Don Giovanni

Il mio tesoro intanto		Meantime go and
	andate a consolar,		console my dearest one,
E del bel ciglio il pianto	and seek to dry the tears
	cercate di asciugar.		from her lovely eyes.
Ditele che i suoi torti		Tell her that I have gone
	a vendicar io vado;		to avenge her wrongs,
Che sol di stragi e morti	and will return only as the messenger
	nunzio vogl'io tornar.			of punishment and death.
