Shakescene Music: Tunes from Will's age and plays

Good eve, gentles! Today, your Will hath for thee music from mine playes and age. This tune is one that be popular for parties.

Come, thou monarch of the vine, 
Plumpy Bacchus with pink eyne!
In thy fats our cares be drown'd,
With thy grapes our hairs be crown'd:
Cup us, till the world go round,
Cup us, till the world go round!
(Antony and Cleopatra, 2.7.127-32)
