The Persians o'er wild and waste,

In their camps of yesterday;

Not without violence, and he kicks under the grand piano,
The nightmare chase well under way.

With loving praises and laughter,
For he is a monster ugly and grim
That they go running after.
And when they get well into the chase
He lifts his masque and shows his face.
