Arne's setting from The Tempest arranged for inclusion in his anthology of Shakespearean songs by William Linley.
Lyrics: William Shakespeare

Where the bee sucks there lurk I,
In a cowslip's bell I lie,
There I crouch when owls do cry,
On a bat's back do I fly
After sunset merrily.
Merrily, merrily shall I live now,
Under the blossom that hangs on the bough.
