The gentleman explains to Gertrude that Ophelia has gone mad. She is rambling nonsensically about her father and insisting on seeing Gertrude. The queen reuctantly admits Ophelia, who proceeds to sing a number of simple and haunting songs, some of them quite bawdy. Scene Five, Lines 2-4.

She is importunate, Indeed distract. Her mood will needs be pitied.
