Composer: Henry Purcell
Original text and translations
Fie, nay, prithee, John,
Do not quarrel, man!
Lets be merry and drink about;
You're a rogue, you cheated me!
I'll prove before this company,
I caren't a farthing, sir,
for all you are so stout!
Sir, you lie! I scorned your word,
or any man that wears a sword!
For all your huff, who cares a damn,
and who cares for you?
