CHORUS 3

lyrics

David Avidor - voice, tape

CHORUS 3
returning home agayne crounde
a signe of worthy victory
is Agamemnon now

thou that bestryds thy fathers steedes as hee before hath done

how thy honour to expresse
what solemn games to celebrate

a man can make vowd oblations to the gods
yet hee destroyes and batters
a man can gan his self advance
counterfayting a mourning face with teares
singe sugred ditties eke
for the lusty pompe of royall courte

the shepherd who knoweth not
the peoples heart
is in a piteous plight

my hearts hate did hang over thy head
for the cause that wild thee heather wend

an army with headlong scouring course amayne to Troy
and so longe a tyme
our sonnes hewed downe for Helen

but now most lovingly with heart and hand
with these gyftes
I gratefie and welcome home my frend
my sire who skalde and shooke the tattred Troyan walles

take heede of what you shall heare
it shall teach thee
who can stande upryght
and who yet is savage
who yet is untamed and unbridled
