Enter Gaoler's Daughter
I am very cold, and all the stars are out too,
The little stars and all, that look like aglets.
(plural) tiny shining ornaments worn on a dress, spangles
The sun has seen my folly. Palamon!
Alas no; he's in heaven. Where am I now?
Yonder's the sea, and there's a ship; how't tumbles!
And there's a rock lies watching under water;
Now, now, it beats upon it; now, now, now,
There's a leak sprung, a sound one; how they cry!
Spoon her before the wind, you'll lose all else;
Up with a course or two, and tack about, boys.
Good night, good night, you're gone. I am very hungry.
Would I could find a fine frog; he would tell me
News from all parts o'th' world; then would I make
A carrack of a cockleshell, and sail
By east and north-east to the King of Pygmies,
For he tells fortunes rarely. Now my father,
Twenty to one, is trussed up in a trice
Tomorrow morning; I'll say never a word.
For I'll cut my green coat, a foot above my knee,
And I'll clip my yellow locks, an inch below mine ee;
Hey, nonny, nonny, nonny.
He s' buy me a white cut, forth for to ride,
And I'll go seek him, through the world that is so wide;
Hey nonny, nonny, nonny.
O for a prick now, like a nightingale,
To put my breast against; I shall sleep like a top else.
