King John Translation Act 3, Scene 2
Alarums, excursions. Enter the BASTARD, with AUSTRIA'S head
Now, by my life, this day grows wondrous hot; Some airy devil hovers in the sky And pours down mischief. Austria's head lie there, While Philip breathes.
By my life, this day has become very hot. Some air devil is hovering in the sky, pouring down mischief. Lie there, Austria's head, while Philip is alive.

Hubert, guard this boy. Philip, let's go. My mother is being attacked in our tent, and I fear she's been captured.
My lord, I rescued her; Her highness is in safety, fear you not: But on, my liege; for very little pains Will bring this labour to an happy end.
My lord, I rescued her. She's safe, don't worry. Keep going, my king. Very little effort will make this work end happily.
