MacHeath has been taken to Newgate where he is expecting a quick trial followed by an execution. Since he was betrayed by two of his women friends, his tune has changed since he sang of the joys of dalliance in no. 19 - although a phrase from that song still creeps in at the end of this number, to haunt him.

One of the bassoons may be substituted with a cello, but if this is the case, the second bassoon part, when it appears in cue form, should be played by the remaining bassoon player, if s/he is up to it!

The original tune is that of a Broadside Ballad entitled "Courtiers, courtiers, think it no harm"
