Sigh No More, Ladies
By William Shakespeare
 
(From Much Ado about Nothing, Act II. Scene III.)

SIGH no more, ladies, sigh no more,
  Men were deceivers ever;
One foot in sea, and one on shore;
  To one thing constant never.
    Then sigh not so,        5
    But let them go,
  And be you blithe and bonny,
Converting all your sounds of woe
  Into Hey nonny, nonny.
 
Sing no more ditties, sing no more        10
  Of dumps so dull and heavy;
The fraud of me was ever so,
  Since summer first was leavy.
    Then sigh not so,
    But let them go,        15
  And be you blithe and bonny,
Converting all your sounds of woe
  Into Hey nonny, nonny.
