    SCENE II. The forest.

    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.
