Father, why are you quiet? Isn't what we're saying true? Aren't you listening? Or are you deafened by the noise?

Silenus
Shush! What is it?

Chorus
I'm getting out of here!

Silenus
Stay, if you can.

Chorus
No way. But you go ahead: you keep looking and track down the cows, any way you want to, and take the gold ... unless the biggest ... time.

Silenus
No, I won't leave you, nor sneak away from the work, before we know for sure what's going on in there.

Chorus
Addressing the source of the noise Hey! You in there! ... voice ... reward ... you will be happy at home. To Silenus He's not coming out. To the noise-maker again. But I'll force you out, making the ground rumble with my swift leaps and kicks, so you'll listen, even if you're altogether deaf.
