  1. Enter Jailer’s Daughter.


1 - 26
  1. I am very cold, and all the stars are out too,
  2. The little stars and all, that look like aglets.
  3. The sun has seen my folly. Palamon!
  4. Alas, no; he’s in heaven. Where am I now?
  5. Yonder’s the sea, and there’s a ship. How’t tumbles!
  6. And there’s a rock lies watching under water;
  7. Now, now, it beats upon itnow, now, now!
  8. There’s a leak sprung, a sound one. How they cry!
  9. Open her before the wind! You’ll lose all else.
  10. Up with a course or two, and tack about, boys!
  11. Good night, good night, y’ are gone. I am very hungry:
  12. Would I could find a fine frog! He would tell me
  13. News from all parts o’ th’ world. Then would I make
  14. A carreck of a cockleshell, and sail
  15. By east and north-east to the King of Pigmies,
  16. For he tells fortunes rarely. Now my father,
  17. Twenty to one, is truss’d up in a trice
  18. Tomorrow morning; I’ll say never a word.
  19. Sing.
  20. For I’ll cut my green coat a foot above my knee,
  21. And I’ll clip my yellow locks an inch below mine e’e.
  22. Hey, nonny, nonny, nonny.
  23. He s’ buy me a white cut, forth for to ride,
  24. And I’ll go seek him through the world that is so wide.
  25. Hey, nonny, nonny, nonny.”
  26. O for a prick now, like a nightingale,
  27. To put my breast against! I shall sleep like a top else.
  1. Exit.
