Enter Strephon, singing and dancing and playing on a flageolet. He does not see the Fairies, who retire up stage as he enters.

Good morrow, good mother!
Good mother, good morrow!
By some means or other,
Pray banish your sorrow!
With joy beyond telling
My bosom is swelling,
So join in a measure
Expressive of pleasure,
For I'm to be married to-day — to-day —
Yes, I'm to be married to-day!

Fairies. (aside)

Yes, he's to be married to-day — to-day —
Yes, he's to be married to-day!
