The Noble Spanish Soldier
Sorrow becomes me best.
A suit of laugh and lie down would wear better.
What should I do to be merry, Cornego?
Be not sad.
But what's the best mirth in the world?
Marry this, to see much, say little, do little, get little, spend little and want nothing.
Oh, but there is a mirth beyond all these;
This picture has so vexed me, I'm half mad,
To spite it therefore, I'll sing any song
Thyself shall tune. Say then, what mirth is best?
Why then Madam, what I knock out now is the very marrowbone of mirth and this it is.
The best mirth for a lawyer
