{{LinkText|Sigh no more, ladies}}
Sigh no more, ladies, sigh no more,
 
Men were deceivers ever,
 
Men were deceivers ever;
 
One foot in sea, and one on shore,
 
To one thing constant never,
 
To one thing constant never.
 
Then sigh not so,
 
But let them go,
 
And be you blithe and bonny,
 
And be you blithe and bonny;
 
Converting all your sounds of woe,
 
Converting all your sounds of woe;
 
To hey, nonny, nonny.
 
Hey, nonny, nonny,
 
Hey, nonny, nonny,
 
Hey, nonny, nonny.
 
 
Sing no more ditties, sing no more,
 
Of dumps so dull and heavy,
 
Of dumps so dull and heavy;
 
The fraud of men was ever so,
 
Since summer first was leafy,
 
Since summer first was leafy.
 
Then sigh not so,
 
But let them go,
 
And be you blithe and bonny,
 
And be you blithe and bonny;
 
Converting all your sounds of woe,
 
Converting all your sounds of woe;
 
To hey, nonny, nonny.
 
Hey, nonny, nonny,
 
Hey, nonny, nonny,
 
Hey, nonny, nonny.}}
