Reception of Omai and his Suit, by dancing and singing the following
G L E E. A I R IX. Natives.
Give me thy paw, my bonny bonny bear,
And here come dip thy muzzle;
Tho' a good warm coat thy back doth wear,
When tempests blow
The drifted show,
Oh that's the time for a merry merry sup,
So we'll chear our hearts with a chirping cup,
And close together nuzzle.
When the North-wind whistles we dance to the
And we quaff,
And we laugh
At the chrystal beard that hangs from the goat.
[At the end of which, Harlequin having lost Londina and Maid, changes the whole Habitation to
* Winter habitation.
