  • An't please your honour, players
    That offer service to your lordship.
  • An't please your honour, players
    That offer service to your lordship.
  • Lord. Take him up gently, and to bed with him;
    And each one to his office when he wakes.
    [SLY is carried out. A trumpet sounds]
    Sirrah, go see what trumpet 'tis that sounds-
    [Exit SERVANT]
    Belike some noble gentleman that means,
    Travelling some journey, to repose him here.
    [Re-enter a SERVINGMAN]
    How now! who is it?

    Servant. An't please your honour, players
    That offer service to your lordship.

  • Mistress, your father prays you leave your books
    And help to dress your sister's chamber up.
    You know to-morrow is the wedding-day.
  • Bianca. [Reads]
    '"Gamut" I am, the ground of all accord-
    "A re" to plead Hortensio's passion-
    "B mi" Bianca, take him for thy lord-
    "C fa ut" that loves with all affection-
    "D sol re" one clef, two notes have I-
    "E la mi" show pity or I die.'
    Call you this gamut? Tut, I like it not!
    Old fashions please me best; I am not so nice
    To change true rules for odd inventions.

    Servant. Mistress, your father prays you leave your books
    And help to dress your sister's chamber up.
    You know to-morrow is the wedding-day.
