	[Enter JAQUES, Lords, and Foresters]

JAQUES: Which is he that killed the deer?

A Lord: Sir, it was I.

JAQUES: Let's present him to the duke, like a Roman
	conqueror; and it would do well to set the deer's
	horns upon his head, for a branch of victory. Have
	you no song, forester, for this purpose?

Forester: Yes, sir.

JAQUES: Sing it: 'tis no matter how it be in tune, so it
	make noise enough.
	
	SONG.
Forester: What shall he have that kill'd the deer?
	His leather skin and horns to wear.
	Then sing him home;

	[The rest shall bear this burden]

	Take thou no scorn to wear the horn;
	It was a crest ere thou wast born:
	Thy father's father wore it,
	And thy father bore it:
	The horn, the horn, the lusty horn
	Is not a thing to laugh to scorn.

	[Exeunt]
