The Antimasque

Exter Bob, the buttery spirit,˚ singing.

The buttery key is lost,
The buttery key is lost,
And Tom he has got it,˚

He swears they shall pot it, 5
And every horn be tossed,
And every horn be tossed,
And every horn be tossed.
He will ha' no flinching,˚
A pox of all pinching,˚ 10
He knows what a hogshead cost.

Exter Puck, the country spirit, stealing in softly.

PUCK O ho ho!˚ My mad musical boys are ready--is the coast clear
now? O ho ho!

BOB [aside] How now, art thee˚ there indeed, boy? Old Robin,˚ alive 15

and alive's like. Now for a trick upon him. (He fires his flax˚ and
claps down behind him, and Puck falls over
.) Buzz ha ha ha, quoth
the blue fly; hum quoth the bee, etc.˚ Puck, honest Puck, a fire on
you, you'll not know your old friends.
PUCK Whoa! Bob o' the buttery! Welcome to Leicestershire again. 20
As thou lovest me, spirit, tell me--what news abroad? Where the
vengeance has thou been thus long?
