Sigh No More, Ladies (from Much Ado About Nothing)

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 moe
Of dumps so dull and heavy;
The fraud of men were ever so,
Since summer first was leavy.
Then sigh not so, but let them go,
And be you blithe and bonny,
Converting all your sounds of woe
Into hey, nonny, nonny.

— William Shakespeare

    Where did you cut and paste this from? “Sing no MOE”? What is this, “The Bard in the Getto”? I see this all over the Internet and can’t figure out why people let this happen.
