This is really too fantastic!
It’s a most romantic story
SOPRANOS What’s so funny? Let us hear it, we would like to hear the story
It is all about Sir Tristan and his love, the fair Isolda
Read it, read it,
let us hear it.
I’ll join the crowd so I can hear the story, too.
“Tristan adored Isolda with unrequited ardor,
for there was nothing harder than Queen Isolde’s heart.
Tristan in desperation, sought out a wise magician
who had him drink a potion, a magic elixir of love.
And from that time Isolda gave Tristan
all her soul and heart.”
It was such a perfect potion
I would love to try it, too
If I only had a notion
what was in that magic brew
Continue, then what happened
“And from that weary moment…”
“And from that very moment when Tristan drank the potion,
a fiery deep devotion possessed Isolda, too
Reserved and cold no longer,
burning with glowing fervor
love growing ever stronger
happiness filled Isolda
She lived for Tristan only,
to Tristan remaining ever true
