MIDI file

Doris: Then fare thee well, my dearest love,
'Tis hard that we should part
With happiness so very near.
Shelton: You traitors both shall smart!
Anne: Cruel father!
Shelton: I had rather drop the father, if you please.
Sir Philip: Hang your duty!
Martin: Love and beauty beg for mercy on their knees!
Shelton: No!
Doris: On both our knees!
Shelton: No!
Anne: On both our knees!
All: After all, who proves the treason
That should make him lose his head?
Can't you, won't you find some reason
For releasing him instead?
Sir Philip: Worthy sir, I do implore you,
As a pillar of the law,
Let me put a case before you
That has not been put before.
The Four: Let us put it to you whether,
If the law requires his head,
They'd not better go together,
What's its use when he is dead?
Shelton: Off to prison both together,
I have said what I have said,
I will have no why or whether,
To the watch let both be led!
The Four: He will have no why or whether,
He has said what he has said.
Doris: Hear me, Sir,
Shelton: No!
Anne: Hear me, Sir,
Shelton: No!
Two girls:

Then fare thee well, my only love,

'Tis hard that we should part,
And harder still that death should prove
A true and constant heart.

The Four: Then fare thee well, my only love,
'Tis hard that we should part,
And harder still that death should prove
A true and constant heart.
Shelton: Off to prison both together,
I have said what I have said,
I will have no why or whether,
To the watch let both be led!
