Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

TOM'S AND NICK'S VOICES
If boys had wings
and girls had stings
and gold fell from the sky,
if new-laid eggs
wore wooden legs
I should not laugh or cry.

ANNE
It's Tom, I know!

BABA
The two, then go!

SELLEM, CROWD
The thief, below!
Then go to him!.
His crime was grave.
