  • Madam, we'll play at bowls.
  • Madam, we'll play at bowls.
  • Queen. What sport shall we devise here in this garden,
    To drive away the heavy thought of care?

    Lady. Madam, we'll play at bowls.

2 III / 4
  • Madam, we'll dance.
  • Madam, we'll dance.
  • Queen. 'Twill make me think the world is full of rubs,
    And that my fortune rubs against the bias.

    Lady. Madam, we'll dance.

3 III / 4
  • Madam, we'll tell tales.
  • Madam, we'll tell tales.
  • Queen. My legs can keep no measure in delight,
    When my poor heart no measure keeps in grief:
    Therefore, no dancing, girl; some other sport.

    Lady. Madam, we'll tell tales.

4 III / 4
  • Of either, madam.
  • Of either, madam.
  • Queen. Of sorrow or of joy?

    Lady. Of either, madam.

5 III / 4
  • Madam, I'll sing.
  • Madam, I'll sing.
  • Queen. Of neither, girl:
    For of joy, being altogether wanting,
    It doth remember me the more of sorrow;
    Or if of grief, being altogether had,
    It adds more sorrow to my want of joy:
    For what I have I need not to repeat;
    And what I want it boots not to complain.

    Lady. Madam, I'll sing.

6 III / 4
  • I could weep, madam, would it do you good.
  • I could weep, madam, would it do you good.
  • Queen. 'Tis well that thou hast cause
    But thou shouldst please me better, wouldst thou weep.

    Lady. I could weep, madam, would it do you good.
