Original text and translations
New oysters, new.
Have you any wood to cleave?
What kitchen stuff have you, maids?
New oysters, new oysters,
new walefleet oysters,
at a groat a pecke,
each oyster worth two pence,
fetch us bread and wine that we may eate,
let us lose no time with such good meat,
a banquet for a prince.
