Rip: Ho! ho! ho! ho!
Friend echoes, why do ye fail?
From crag and from crevice, awaken!
I'm not all forsaken
If ye give me back hail for hail!
If ye give me back hail for hail!
What will they have, who chase all after?
Chorus (off): Laughter!
Rip: Ah! ye are but fancies and air!
Chorus: Dare!
Rip: But now 'tis the hour for an orison!
Chorus: Or a song!
Rip: Orison!
Chorus: Or a song!
Rip: Tra la la la! La la la la la la la la la!
Chorus: La la la la!
Rip: Tra la la la! La la la la la la la la la!
Chorus: La la la la!
Rip: Tra la la la! Tra la la la!
Tra la la la la la la! La la...
Chorus: Tra la la la!
