OPERA CLASSICS LIBRARY Page 44 As a military band is heard in the distance, the soldiers form a line in front of the guardhouse. The relief appears, followed by a crowd and street-boys. Then Lieutenant Zuniga and Corporal Don José appear, followed by the dragoons. As the retiring guards go off duty, street-boys march behind them and repeat their proud marching song. CHOEUR DES GAMINS: Avec la garde montante, nous arrivons, nous voilà! Sonne, trompette éclatante! Ta ra ta ra ta ta ! Ta ra ta ra ta ta!
CARMEN: (aside to Don José) When we’re on the road, I’ll push you as hard as I can. Turn around as you fall. I’ll take care of the rest. L’amour est enfant de bohême. Il n’a jamais connu de loi. Si tu ne m’aimes pas, je t’aime. Si je t’aime, prends garde à toi! Si tu ne m’aimes pas, je t’aime! Mais si je t’aime, prends garde à toi! (They begin to march off) Love is like a gypsy’s child, that knows no law. If you don’t love me, I’ll love you. If I love you, you’d better watch out! Carmen marches off with the Don José and the soldiers.

Tu n’auras pas le courage de nous laisser dans l’embarras. EL REMENDADO AND EL DANCAÏRO: Carmen my love, please come along. Don’t be contrary and interfere with our plans.
