      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,

      In bring|ing them | to ci|vil di|scipline:
            ,     T   T     T      2      ,           ,
      Thy late | exploits done | in the heart | of France,

      When thou | wert re|gent for | our so|vereign,
             ,            ,          ,        ,        ,      ->

      In what | we can,| to bri|dle 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 pro|fit of | the land.
 
WARWICK
          ,          ,         ,        ,           ,
      So God | help^War|wick, as | he loves | the land,
           ,       ,       ,         ,
      And com|mon pro|fit of | his coun|try.
 
YORK [Aside]

SALISBURY

WARWICK

      O fa|ther, Maine | is lost,  (tri with prev)
             ,       ,          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 fa|ther 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 gi|ven 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 ar|ticles,
            ,         ,         ,             ,     ,
      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 pur|chase friends | and give | to cour|tezans,
             ,      ,           ,           ,         ,
      Still re|velling | like lords | till all | be gone,
             ,        ,      ,      ,         ,
      While as | the sil|ly ow|ner of | the goods
            ,       ,           ,          ,         ,
      Weeps^o|ver 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 En|gland, France,| and Ire||land,
        ,        2    ,        ,        ,           ,
      Bear | that propor|tion to | my flesh | and blood,
          ,         ,       ,         ,       ,
      As did | the fa|tal 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 Ne|vils' parts
            ,        ,         ,     .   T     T    T       ->
      And make | a show | of love | to proud Duke Humph||rey,
       ,        2   ,       ,          ,           ,
      And | when I spy | advan|tage, claim | the crown,
            ,           ,        ,        ,        ,
      For that's | the gol|den mark | I seek | to hit:
       ,            T    T  .  T       ,         ,
      Nor shall | proud Lancaster | usurp | my right,
            ,          ,       ,         ,         ,
      Nor hold | the scep|ter in | his chil|dish fist,
            ,         ,   ,      ,          ,
      Nor wear | the di|adem | upon | his head,
               ,          ,        ,     ,            ,
      Whose^church-|like^hu|mors fits | not for | a crown.
             ,         ,        ,            ,         ,
      Then York | be still | awhile,| till time | do serve:
        ,                ,         ,        ,      ,
      Watch thou | and wake | when o|thers be | asleep,
          ,       ,        ,        ,         ,
      To pry | into | the se|crets of | the state;
            ,       ,       ,         ,         ,
      Till Hen|ry, sur|feiting | 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.
