      Oft have | I seen | the haugh|ty car|dinal,
        T    T  .  T         ,       ,      2       ,
      More like a sol|dier than | a man | of the church,
           ,           ,         ,          ,        ,
      As stout | and proud | as he | were lord | of all,
        T     T  .  T    2    ,        ,         ,
      Swear like a ruf|fian, and | demean | himself
          ,         ,      ,      ,       ,
      Unlike | the ru|ler of | a com|monweal.
       ,            ,         ,        ,       ,
      Warwick | my son,| the com|fort of | my age,
            ,           ,          ,          ,    ,
      Thy deeds,| thy plain|ness, and | thy house|keeping,
            ,          ,         x      ,        ,
      Hath won | the great|est favor | of the | commons,
         ,         ,          ,      T   T   T
      Excep|ting none | but good | Duke Humphrey.
           ,         ,          ,       ,     ,
      And broth|er York,| thy acts | in I|reland,
           ,         ,        ,      ,      ,
      In bring|ing them | to civ|il di|scipline:
            ,     T   T     T      2      ,           ,
      Thy late | exploits done | in the heart | of France,
             ,          ,       ,         ,     ,
      When thou | wert re|gent for | our sov|ereign,
             ,            ,          ,        ,        ,      ->
      Have made | thee feared | and hon|ored of | the peo||ple,
        ,      2   ,       ,         ,        ,
      Join | we togeth|er for | the pub|lic good,
           ,        ,        ,       ,         ,
      In what | we can,| to brid|le and | suppress
            ,         ,         ,         ,     ,
      The pride | of Suf|folk, and | the car|dinal,
            ,      ,           ,       ,        ,       ->
      With So|merset's | and Buck|ingham's | ambi||tion,
       ,      2    ,     ,               ,           ,
      And | as we may,| cherish | Duke^Humph|rey's deeds,
              ,         ,         ,       ,         ,
      While they | do tend | the prof|it of | the land.
 
WARWICK
          ,          ,         ,        ,           ,
      So God | help^War|wick, as | he loves | the land,
           ,       ,       ,         ,
      And com|mon prof|it of | his count|ry.
 
YORK
           ,          ,
      And so | says York,
                               ,          ,         ,
                          For he | hath great|est cause.
 
SALISBURY
             ,            ,       ,
      Then let's | make^haste | away,
            ,       ,         ,
      And look | unto | the main.  (tri with prev)
 
WARWICK
         ,         ,
      Unto | the main?
                          ,         ,          ,
                       O fath|er, Maine | is lost,
             ,       ,          T    T    T      2     ,
      That Maine,| which by | main force War|wick did win,
            ,            ,         ,          ,           ,
      And would | have kept,| so long | as breath | did last:
        T     T    T     2      ,         ,           ,
      Main chance fath|er you meant,| but I | meant Maine,
            ,         ,            ,          ,         ,
      Which I | will win | from France,| or else | be slain.
 
[Exeunt WARWICK and SALISBURY]
 
YORK
       ,            ,          ,      ,          ,
      Anjou | and Maine | are giv|en to | the French,
       ,           ,          ,         ,      ,
      Paris | is lost,| the state | of Nor|mandy
         ,            ,       ,      ,               ,
      Stands on | a tick|le point,| now they | are gone:
       ,            ,       ,        ,     ,
      Suffolk | conclu|ded on | the art|icles,
            ,         ,         ,             ,     ,
      The peers | agreed,| and Hen|ry was / well pleased,
       .    T    T    T    ,     2      ,             ,
      To change two duke|doms for a | duke's fair | daughter.
         ,        ,           ,           x          ,
      I can|not blame | them all,| what is it | to them?
             ,            ,      ,         ,           ,
      'Tis thine | they give | away,| and not | their own.
       ,     2        T    T    T  .    ,     2         ,
      Pirates may | make cheap penny|worths of their | pillage,
           ,           ,            ,         ,      ,
      And purch|ase friends,| and give | to court|ezans,
             ,      ,           ,           ,         ,
      Still rev|elling | like lords | till all | be gone,
             ,        ,      ,      ,         ,
      While as | the sil|ly ow|ner of | the goods
            ,       ,           ,          ,         ,
      Weeps^ov|er them | and wrings | his hap|less hands,
             ,           ,          ,           ,        ,
      And shakes | his head,| and trem|bling stands | aloof,
             ,          ,          ,         ,       ,
      While all | is shared,| and all | is borne | away,
       ,            ,           ,          ,          ,
      Ready | to starve,| and dare | not touch | his own.
           ,          ,          ,          ,           ,
      So York | must sit,| and fret,| and bite | his tongue,
                   ,    ,          ,          ,          ,
      While his / own lands | are bar|gained for,| and sold:
           ,            ,         ,           ,          ,       ->
      Methinks | the realms | of Eng|land, France,| and Ire||land,
        ,        2    ,        ,        ,           ,
      Bear | that propor|tion to | my flesh | and blood,
          ,         ,       ,         ,       ,
      As did | the fat|al brand | Althae|a burned,
       ,           ,         ,         ,    ,
      Unto | the prin|ce's heart | of Cal|ydon:
       ,            ,       T    Tx   ,   2       ,
      Anjou | and Maine | both given un|to the French?
        T    T   .  T        ,         ,          ,
      Cold news for me:| for I | had hope | of France,
      ,        2    ,        ,        ,           ,
      Even | as I have | of fer|tile Eng|land's soil.
         ,           ,           ,            ,          ,
      A day | will come,| when York | shall claim | his own,
            ,        ,          ,         ,         ,
      And there|fore I | will take | the Nev|ils' parts,
            ,        ,         ,     .   T     T    T       ->
      And make | a show | of love | to proud Duke Humph||rey,
       ,        2   ,       ,          ,           ,
      And | when I spy | advant|age, claim | the crown,
            ,           ,        ,        ,        ,
      For that's | the gold|en mark | I seek | to hit:
       ,            T    T  .  T       ,         ,
      Nor shall | proud Lancaster | usurp | my right,
            ,          ,       ,         ,         ,
      Nor hold | the scep|ter in | his child|ish fist,
            ,         ,   ,      ,          ,
      Nor wear | the di|adem | upon | his head,
               ,          ,        ,     ,            ,
      Whose^church-|like^hum|ors fits | not for | a crown.
             ,         ,        ,            ,         ,
      Then York | be still | awhile,| till time | do serve:
        ,                ,         ,        ,      ,
      Watch thou | and wake | when oth|ers be | asleep,
          ,       ,        ,        ,         ,
      To pry | into | the sec|rets of | the state,
            ,      ,       ,         ,         ,
      Till Hen|ry surf|eiting | in joys | of love,
          2     ,      ,           ,            T     T     T
      With his new | bride, and | England's | dear-bought queen,
            ,         ,          ,         ,     2     ,
      And Humph|rey with | the peers | be fal|len at jars:
        ,      2      ,       ,          T    T     T
      Then will I | raise a|loft the | milk-white rose,
             ,              ,          ,           ,        ,
      With whose | sweet* smell | the air | shall be | perfumed,
           ,        ,         ,          ,         ,
      And in | my stan|dard bear | the arms | of York,
           ,        ,          ,         ,      ,
      To grap|ple with | the house | of Lan|caster,
            ,          ,            ,          ,           ,
      And force | perforce,| I'll make | him yield | the crown,
              ,        ,            ,           ,         ,
      Whose book|ish rule,| hath pulled | fair^Eng|land down.
