My clown, (who wants but something to be a reasonable man,) grew so in love with the wenches' song, that he would not stir his pettitoes, till he had both tune and words; which so drew the rest of the herd to me, that all their other senses stuck in ears : you might have pinched a placket, it was senseless ; 'twas nothing, to geld a codpiece of a purse; I would have filed keys off, that hung in chains: no hearing, no feeling, but my sir’s song, and admiring the nothing of it.

[Aside. Cam. Nay, pr’ythee, despatch : the gentleman is half flayed already.? Aut. Are you in earnest, sir ?-I smell the trick of it.
[Aside. Flo. Despatch, I pr’ythee.
Aut. Indeed, I have had earnest; but I cannot with conscience take it. Cam. Unbuckle, unbuckle.
