Thomas Linley's setting of Ariel's song was composed with an orchestral accompaniment as part of his incidental music for "The Tempest". This reduced version was issued posthumously by his brother William in his own collection of Shakespearean settings.

Lyrics: William Shakespeare

Ere you can say 'come' and 'go',
Or breathe twice, or cry 'so, so',
Each one, tripping on his toe,
Will be here with mop and mow.
Do you love me, master? no?

Thomas Linley
(the younger, 1756 - 1778)
