Libretto/Lyrics/Text/Testo:

Trio

(Tom speaks low voice)

Laughter and light and all charms that endear,
all that dazzles or dins,
wisdom and wit shall adorn the career of him
who can play and who wins.

ANNE
(speaks low voice)
Heart, you are happy,
yet why should a tear
dim our joyous designs?

TRUELOVE
(speaks low voice)
Fortune so swift
and so easy, I fear,
may only encourage his sins.

(To Tom)

Be well advised.

ANNE
Be always near!

ANNE, TRUELOVE, TOM
Farewell!

(Anne, Tom and Truelove go through
the gate of the garden)

NICK
(To audience)
The progress of a rake begins.
