By this scimitar

That slew the Sophy and a Persian prince

That won three fields of Sultan Solyman,

I would o'erstare the sternest eyes that look,

Outbrave the heart most daring on the earth,

Pluck the young sucking cubs from the she-bear,

Yea, mock the lion when he roars for prey,

To win the lady.

Morroco swears that he would face any foe and be braver than any man on earth to win her love.
