Another Part of the Forest.
To-morrow is the joyful day, Audrey; to-morrow will we be married.
I do desire it with all my heart, and I hope it is no dishonest desire to desire to be a woman of the world. Here come two of the banished duke’s pages.
Enter two Pages.
Well met, honest gentleman.
By my troth, well met. Come, sit, sit, and a song.
We are for you: sit i’ the middle.
Shall we clap into’t roundly, without hawking or spitting, or saying we are hoarse, which are the only prologues to a bad voice?
I’faith, i’faith; and both in a tune, like two gipsies on a horse.
Truly, young gentlemen, though there was no great matter in the ditty, yet the note was very untuneable.
You are deceived, sir: we kept time; we lost not our time.
By my troth, yes; I count it but time lost to hear such a foolish song. God be wi’ you; and God mend your voices! Come, Audrey.
