I pray you, be of good humour.
I am as calm as still waters, Knave.
As steel waters, I’ll warrant; put up thy
Icy blade! Crack not gory tales of war!
My calmness exceeds thine.
Be of ease, I pray you! Be of good cheer,
And let us not repeat what happen’d here!
My calmness exceeds thine. But hark; here comes a visitor.
Thou wouldst have a toe? A toe can be obtain’d.
Ways are known, Knave. Thou wilt not like to hear.
I’ll have a toe for thee this afternoon
Ere singeth cockerel at three o’clock.
These amateurs would have us soil’d with fear.
“With toe-nails of verdant and forester’s green
With a hey-nonny-no and a hey-nonny-nonny
Blow thrice on my toe-nails and I’ll be thy queen
And ever preserve me as thine, blithe and Bonnie.”
[to THE KNAVE]
I pray you, sir, blow.
