La Donna è Mobile from Rigoletto Verdi Help Opus Details
For feedback and questions, please contact Victor Gomersall.

La donna è mobile,   in English Woman is fickle, is an aria sung by the Duke of Mantua in Giuseppe Verdi's Opera Rigoletto written in 1851. Before this song's first public performance in Venice, it was rehearsed under very tight secrecy: a necessary precaution, because it proved to be very catchy and within a day or two after its first public performance every gondolier in Venice was singing it.

La donna è mobile Woman is flighty
Qual piuma al vento, Like a feather in the wind,
Muta d'accento — e di pensiero. She changes her voice — and her mind.
Sempre un amabile, Always sweet,
Leggiadro viso, Pretty face,
In pianto o in riso, — è menzognero. In tears or in laughter, — it is always lying.
