To be or not to be,

That is the quesiton,

Whether tis nobler in the mind to suffer

The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,

Or to take arms against a sea of troulbes

And by opposing end them.

song from much ado about nothing
Song from Much Ado About Nothing

Sigh no more ladies,

Sigh no more.

Men were deceivers ever,

One foot on 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!
