“The Choir of Bandits” from “Ernani” Opera To life! Drink! Drink! In wine we are seeking at least for one pleasure! To life! Drink! Drink! In wine we are seeking at least for one pleasure! What rest for the bandit if a glass is missing? Let’s play, gold is vain treasure, what is left of it? Let’s play, is life only about great laughter? For woods and slopes we have for friends,
musket and dagger. When night falls and in the horrid caves
evil shapes form. Make merry! Let’s drink, drink, drink, drink! We drink! Make merry! Drink, drink! Make merry! drink, drink, drink! In the wine we are seeking,
seeking at least one pleasure! In the wine, the wine, the wine we are seeking
At least for one pleasure! Drink, drink! In the wine we are seeking,
seeking, at least for one pleasure! In the wine, in the wine, in the wine
We are seeking at least for one pleasure! In the wine, in the wine we are seeking
at least for one pleasure! At least one! In the wine, in the wine we are seeking
at least for one pleasure! At least one! In the wine we are seeking at least
for one pleasure! At least for one pleasure! In the wine we are seeking at least
for one pleasure! At least for one pleasure! In the wine, in the wine we are seeking
at least for one pleasure! Ernani, think! Why do you have such а pale face, brave man? It’s our fate, it is the same
in victory and in death – they are your hand and heart. When the arrow finds its target
we will know the same culprit. Do not fear the deadly dagger,
it cannot hurt. Make merry! Let’s drink! Drink, drink, drink! Make merry! Drink, drink! Make merry and drink! Drink! Drink! In the wine we are seeking, seeking,
seeking at least for one pleasure! In the wine, in the wine, in the wine
we are seeking at least for one pleasure! Drink! Drink! In the wine we are seeking, seeking,
seeking at least for one pleasure! In the wine, in the wine, in the wine
we are seeking at least for one pleasure! In the wine we are seeking, In the wine we are seeking
we are seeking at least for one pleasure! In the wine we are seeking, In the wine we are seeking
we are seeking at least for one pleasure! In the wine we are seeking at least for one pleasure!
At least for one pleasure! In the wine we are seeking at least for one pleasure!
At least for one pleasure! In the wine we are seeking, In the wine we are seeking
we are seeking at least for one pleasure! One pleasure!
