NICK
(Stand up)
Sisters of Venus, bothers of Mars,
fellow worshipers in the temple of delight,
it is my privilege to present to you
a stranger to our rites,
who, following our custom,
begs leave to sing you a song
in earnest of his desire to be initiated.
As you see, he is young.
As you shall discover, he is rich.
my master, and,
if he will pardon the liberty,
my friend, Mr. Tom Rakewell.
