Text heard on Sample: Peter: They listen to money, These Borough gossips. I have my visions, Fiery visions. They call me dreamer, They scoff at my dreams And my ambition, But I know a way To answer the Borough; I'll win them over.

Peter: We'll sail together. These Borough gossips Listen to money Only to money: I'll fish the sea dry, Sell the good catches - That wealthy merchant Grimes will set up Household and shop. You will all see it! I'll marry Ellen!
