Sigh No More
Words by William Shakespeare/John Allee
Music by John Allee

 

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, 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

Of sad songs bleak and keening

The fraud of men was ever so

Since summer first was greening

Then sigh not so, but let them go

And be you blithe and bonny

Converting all your sounds of woe

Into hey nonny nonny
