Cakes And Ale Lyrics


by Toby, Andrew, Feste, Maria, and Malvolio. From Illyria.


TOBY
SOME GO EARLY TO BED,
LIKE MY SISTER'S DAUGHTER.
SOME ARE HAPPILY FED
JUST ON BREAD AND WATER.
I HAVE FIGURED A WAY
LIFE CAN BE MUCH RICHER -
THE SECRET OF WHICH I WILL CONVEY
IF YOU GET THE PITCHER.

ANDREW
I do indeed get the picture, Sir Toby.

TOBY
Of ale.

ANDREW
Oh.

TOBY
FIRST YOU TAKE A TINY SWIG OF ALE,
YOUR THIRST TO SLAKE - BUT THEN THE TASTE IS STALE.
SO NOW TO MAKE IT BETTER HAVE SOME CAKE.
BID THE BITTERNESS GOODBYE.
BUT NOW YOUR MOUTH IS DRY...

SO FIRST YOU TAKE A TINY SWIG OF ALE,
YOUR THIRST TO SLAKE - BUT THEN THE TASTE IS STALE.
SO NOW TO MAKE IT BETTER HAVE SOME CAKE.
BID THE BITTERNESS GOODBYE.

CAKES AND ALE!
LET THE MORALLY-MINDED RANT AND RAIL.
ALL THEIR HOLLERING IS TO NO AVAIL,
FOR I FOR ONE WON'T FAIL
TO GET MY CAKES AND ALE!

FIRST

ANDREW
FIRST

TOBY
YOU TAKE

ANDREW

TOBY
A TINY SWIG OF ALE

TOBY
BUT THEN THE TASTE IS STALE

FESTE
THE TASTE IS STALE

TOBY
SO NOW, TO MAKE IT BETTER

ANDREW

TOBY
BID THE BITTERNESS GOODBYE

ANDREW
BUT NOW MY MOUTH IS DRY

TOBY AND FESTE
RIGHT!
SO FIRST YOU TAKE A TINY SWIG OF ALE,
YOUR THIRST TO SLAKE - BUT THEN THE TASTE IS STALE.
SO NOW TO MAKE IT BETTER HAVE SOME CAKE.
BID THE BITTERNESS GOODBYE.
BUT NOW YOUR MOUTH IS DRY

SO FIRST YOU TAKE A SWIG OF ALE,
YOUR THIRST TO SLAKE - THE TASTE IS STALE.
SO NOW TO MAKE IT BETTER HAVE CAKE.
BITTERNESS GOODBYE.
NOW YOUR MOUTH IS DRY

SO FIRST YOU TAKE A SWIG OF ALE,
YOUR THIRST TO SLAKE - THE TASTE IS STALE.
SO NOW TO MAKE IT BETTER HAVE CAKE.
BITTERNESS GOODBYE.
YOUR MOUTH IS DRY

SO FIRST TO SLAKE YOUR THIRST
YOU TAKE A SWIG OF ALE -
THE TASTE IS STALE.
SO NOW TO MAKE IT BETTER HAVE CAKE.
BITTERNESS BYE.

ANDREW

STALE!

TOBY

TOBY

ANDREW AND FESTE
DRY!

TOBY
CAKES AND ALE!

ANDREW AND FESTE
CAKES AND ALE!

TOBY
WHY GO WANDERING OVER HILL AND DALE

ANDREW AND FESTE
HILL AND DALE

TOBY
ON A MISSION TO FIND THE HOLY GRAIL,
WHEN THERE'S A WELL-WORN TRAIL

TOBY, ANDREW, AND FESTE
THAT LEADS TO CAKES AND ALE?

MARIA
What in God's name is going on down here?

TOBY
Hush, woman. We are conducting very important research here.

MARIA
Well your research has awakened the whole house, and I have no doubt Master Malvolio in on his way even now to throw you all
out.

TOBY
But listen, Maria. We have made a discovery.

MARIA
What is that?

TOBY
Observe.
FIRST YOU TAKE A TINY SWIG OF ALE,
YOUR THIRST TO SLAKE...

ANDREW
BUT THEN THE TASTE IS STALE.
SO NOW TO MAKE IT BETTER HAVE SOME CAKE.

FESTE
BID THE BITTERNESS GOODBYE.

TOBY
YOU KNOW HOW IT GOES BOYS!

TOBY, ANDREW, AND FESTE
CAKES AND ALE!
WHEN YOU'RE HAVING 'EM BY THE POUND OR PAIL...

ANDREW
WHEN A KNIGHT CAN BECOME A NIGHTINGALE...

TOBY, ANDREW, AND FESTE
THE THING THAT MAKES YOU MALE
IS HAVING CAKES AND -

MALVOLIO
My masters, are you mad? Have you no respect for persons, place, or time?

TOBY
We did keep time, sir - in our music.

MALVOLIO
Sir Toby, I must be round with you. Though my lady harbors you as a kinsman, she has little patience for your habits. And if
you do not amend yourself, I will very happily throw you and your drunken rabble out of the house.

TOBY
Are you anything more than a servant? Do you think because you are virtuous that there will be no more cakes and ale? Go!
Rub your chain with crumbs.

MALVOLIO
Mistress Mary, if you had any consideration for Lady Olivia, you would put a stop to this drunken riot rather than
encouraging it.

MARIA
I came down here for that exact purpose, Master Malvolio. I have been scolding them, pleading with them, threatening them.
The truth of it is, I have spoke so many words trying to maintain order in this house that now...my mouth is dry!

TOBY
Might I make a suggestion?

MARIA
By all means, Sir Toby.

TOBY
FIRST YOU TAKE A TINY SWIG OF ALE,

MARIA
Don't mind if I do.

TOBY AND ANDREW
YOUR THIRST TO SLAKE. BUT THEN THE TASTE IS STALE.

MARIA
Yes, it is rather.

TOBY, ANDREW, AND FESTE
SO NOW TO MAKE IT BETTER HAVE SOME CAKE.
BID THE BITTERNESS GOODBYE.
BUT NOW YOUR MOUTH IS DRY

TOBY, ANDREW, FESTE, AND MARIA
FIRST YOU TAKE A TINY SWIG OF ALE

MALVOLIO
So that's how it is, then?

TOBY, ANDREW, FESTE, AND MARIA
YOUR THIRST TO SLAKE.
BUT THEN THE TASTE IS STALE.

MALVOLIO
All four of you united in your depravity.

TOBY, ANDREW, FESTE AND MARIA
SO NOW, TO MAKE
IT BETTER, HAVE SOME CAKE.

MALVOLIO
My Lady shall hear of this!

TOBY, ANDREW FESTE, AND MARIA
AND BID THE BITTERNESS GOODBYE!

TOBY
MY MOUTH IS DRY!
