Songs and Their Settings
Balthazar’s Song
By William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
 

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 mo,        10
  Or dumps so dull and heavy;
The frauds of men were 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.
