Text heard on Sample:
Sem: Father, I am all readye bowne;
An axe I have, and by my crowne!
As sharpe as anye in all this towne,
For to goe therto.

Ham: I have a hacchatt wounder keeyne,
To bite well, as maye be seene,
A better grownden, as I wene,
Is not in all this towne.

Jaffett: And I can make right well a pynne,
And with this hamer knocke it in:
Goe wee to worcke without more dynne
And I am ready bowne.

Mrs Sem: Hear is a good hacckinge-stoccke,
On this you maye hewe and knocke;
None shall be idle in this floccke;
For nowe maye noe man fayle.
