As you like it  – ACT TWO SCENE FIVE

Amiens Sings – Under the Greenwood tree

Jaques demands more

JAQUES

More, more, I prithee, more.

AMIENS

It will make you melancholy, Monsieur Jaques.

JAQUES

I thank it. More, I prithee, more. I can suck
melancholy out of a song, as a weasel sucks eggs.
More, I prithee, more.

JAQUES

I do not desire you to please me; I do desire you to
sing.
