by William Shakespeare from The Tempest Act 1 scene 2 ENTER FERDINAND AND ARIEL, INVISIBLE, PLAYING AND SINGING FERDINAND ENTERS WITH ARIEL, WHO IS INVISIBLE AND PLAYING MUSIC AND SINGING. ARIEL (sings)  Come unto these yellow sands,  And then take hands.  Curtsied when you have, and kissed  The wild waves whist.  Foot it featly here and there,  And, sweet sprites, The burden bear. Hark, hark! SPIRITS (dispersedly, within) Bow-wow. ARIEL The watchdogs bark. SPIRITS (offstage) Bow-wow. ARIEL Hark, hark! I hear The strutting strain of chanticleer Cry “Cock-a-diddle-dow.” ARIEL (sings)  Full fathom five thy father lies.  Of his bones are coral made.  Those are pearls that were his eyes.  Nothing of him that doth fade,  But doth suffer a sea-change  Into something rich and strange.  Sea-nymphs hourly ring his knell SPIRITS (within) Ding-dong. ARIEL Hark, now I hear them. SPIRITS (within)  Ding-dong, bell.
ARIEL ENTERS, INVISIBLE, SINGING AND PLAYING MUSIC. ARIEL (to GONZALO) My master through his art foresees the danger That you, his friend, are, and sends me forth— For else his project dies—to keep them living. (sings in GONZALO ’s ear) Part 1  While you here do snoring lie,  Open-eyed conspiracy  His time doth take.  If of life you keep a care,  Shake off slumber and beware.  Awake, awake! Part 2 SEBASTIAN Whilst we stood here securing your repose, Even now, we heard a hollow burst of bellowing Like bulls, or rather lions. Did ’t not wake you? It struck mine ear most terribly. ALONSO     I heard nothing. ANTONIO Oh, ’twas a din to fright a monster’s ear, To make an earthquake! Sure, it was the roar Of a whole herd of lions.
STEPHANO ENTERS, SINGING.  I shall no more to sea, to sea,  Here shall I die ashore— This is a very scurvy tune to sing at a man’s funeral. Well, here’s my comfort. (drinks, sings)  The master, the swabber, the boatswain, and I,  The gunner and his mate  Loved Mall, Meg, and Marian, and Margery,  But none of us cared for Kate.  For she had a tongue with a tang,  Would cry to a sailor, “Go hang!”  She loved not the savor of tar nor of pitch,  Yet a tailor might scratch her where'er she did itch.  Then to sea, boys, and let her go hang! This is a scurvy tune too. But here’s my comfort.
TRINCULO A howling monster, a drunken monster. CALIBAN (sings)  No more dams I’ll make for fish,  Nor fetch in firing  At requiring,  Nor scrape trencher, nor wash dish.  'Ban, 'Ban, Ca-caliban  Has a new master. Get a new man.  Freedom, high-day, high-day, freedom, freedom, high-day, freedom!
STEPHANO Come on, Trinculo, let us sing. (sings)  Flout 'em and scout 'em,  And scout 'em and flout 'em.  Thought is free. CALIBAN That’s not the tune. ARIEL PLAYS THE TUNE ON A TABOR AND PIPE TRINCULO The sound is going away. Let’s follow it, and after do our work. STEPHANO Lead, monster; we’ll follow. I would I could see this taborer. He lays it on.
JUNO (sings)  Honor, riches, marriage, blessing,  Long continuance, and increasing,  Hourly joys be still upon you.  Juno sings her blessings on you.
