Full Fathom Five
Words by William Shakespeare
Music by John Allee

Full fathom five thy father lies

Of his bones are coral made

Those are pearls that were his eyes

Nothing of him that doth fade

But doth suffer a sea-change

Into something rich and strange

Sea-nymphs hourly ring his knell


Ding-dong, hark, now I hear them

Ding-dong, hark, hark, how I hear them

Ding-dong, ding-dong bell
