Non più andrai, Figaro's aria from Le Nozze di Figaro

Non più andrai, farfallone amoroso, 	You won't go any more, amorous
Notte e giorno d'intorno girando,      	Fluttering around inside night and day,
Delle belle turbando il riposo,        	Disturbing the sleep of beauties,
Narcisetto, Adoncino d'amor.           	A little Narcissus and Adonis of love.
Non piu avrai questi bei penacchini,   	You won't have those fine feathers
                                                     	any more,
Quel cappello leggiero e galante,      	That light and jaunty hat,
Quella chioma, quell'aria brillante,   	That hair, that shining aspect,
Quel vermiglio donnesco color!         	That womanish red color [in your face]!
Fra guerrieri, poffar Bacco!           	Among soldiers, by Bacchus!
Gran mustacchi, stretto sacco,         	A huge moustache, a little knapsack,
Schioppo in spalla, sciabla al fianco, 	Gun on your back, sword at your side,
Collo dritto, muso franco,             	Your neck straight, your nose exposed,
Un gran casco, o un gran turbante,     	A big helmet, or a big turban,
Molto onor, poco contante.             	A lot of honour, very little pay.
Ed in vece del fandango                	And in place of the dance
Una marcia per il fango.               	A march through the mud.
Per montagne, per valloni,             	Over mountains, through valleys,
Con le nevi, e i solioni,              	With snow, and heat-stroke,
Al concerto di tromboni,               	To the music of trumpets,
Di bombarde, di cannoni,               	Of bombards, and of cannons,
Che le palle in tutti i tuoni,         	Which, at every boom,
All'orecchio fan fischiar.             	Will make bullets whistle past your ear.
Cherubino, alla vittoria!             	Cherubino, go to victory!
Alla gloria militar!                   	To military glory!
