La Donna È Mobile

The Duke of Mantua does not have a very high opinion of women's characters...

LA DONNA È MOBILE WOMAN IS FICKLE
La donna è mobile
qual piuma al vento,
muta d'accento e di pensiero.
Sempre un amabile
leggiadro viso,
in pianto o in riso
è menzognero.
La donna è mobil
qual piuma al vento
muta d'accento e di pensier.
E sempre misero
qui a lei s'affida,
chi le confida,
mal cauto il core!
Pur mai non sentesi
felice appieno
qui sul quel seno
non liba amore!
La donna è mobil
qual piuma al vento
muta d'accento e di pensier.
Woman is fickle
like a feather in the breeze,
changes her mind at the drop of a hat.
Always shows a charming,
pretty face,
but whether weeping or laughing.
she is deceitful.
Woman is fickle
like a feather in the breeze,
changes her mind at the drop of a hat.
You will be miserable
if you trust her,
if you confide in her
without guarding your heart!
And yet you'll never
feel happy
if you don't sip love
from her breast!
Woman is fickle
like a feather in the breeze,
changes her mind at the drop of a hat.

Rigoletto
text: Francesco Maria Piave
music: Giuseppe Verdi (1813-1901)
translation: a.l.

And the Star Trek version:

Tuvok I understand
You are a Vulcan man.
And you have gone without
for 7 years about
Paris please find a way
To load a hypo-spray
I will give you the sign
just aim for his behind.
Hormones are raging!
Synapsis blazing!
It's all so very illogical. Illogical. Illogical!
