Subject: Lyr Add: Ye (You) Spotted Snakes
From: Q (Frank Staplin)
Date: 18 Jan 14 - 01:19 PM

Shakespeare, music by Richard J. S. Stevens

You spotted snakes with double tongue,
Thorny hedgehogs, be not seen,
Newts and blind-worm, do no wrong,
Come not near our fairy queen.

Philomel, with melody
Sing in our sweet lullaby;
Lulla, lulla, lullaby, lulla, lulla lullaby:
So, good night, with lullaby.

Weaving spiders, come not here;
Hence, you long-legg'd spinners, hence;
Beetles black, approach not near;
Worn nor snail, do not offence.

There are other settings. From "Midsummer Night's Dream."
A recent CD by the Clerks of Christ Church, "A Garland of Elizabethan."
A version on youtube.
