As You Like It: Act 4 Scene 2
Scene II The forest.
- [Enter JAQUES, Lords, and Foresters]
- Which is he that killed the deer?
- A LORD
- Sir, it was I.
- Let's present him to the duke, like a Roman
- conqueror; and it would do well to set the deer's
- horns upon his head, for a branch of victory. Have
- you no song, forester, for this purpose?
- Yes, sir.
- Sing it: 'tis no matter how it be in tune, so it
- make noise enough.
- What shall he have that kill'd the deer?
- His leather skin and horns to wear.
- Then sing him home;
- [The rest shall bear this burden]
- Take thou no scorn to wear the horn;
- It was a crest ere thou wast born:
- Thy father's father wore it,
- And thy father bore it:
- The horn, the horn, the lusty horn
- Is not a thing to laugh to scorn.
