Abstract/Summary

Abstract/Summary: Our good man returns from his nightly carousing to find signs that his wife is not being faithful.  Every night of the week, he finds something amiss (an odd coat on the door, a pair of boots that aren't his under the bed) and demands an explanation.  He then ponders the likelihood of each of her excuses, with humorous rebuttals in song.
