Sigh no more ladies, sigh no more

I just saw the movie about the Shakespearian play Much ado about Nothing made in 1993 by Keneth Branagh, and get seduced again by Balthasar’s song’ when Don Pedro, Claudio Y Leonato are trying to concimce Benekick tiara Beatrrice loves him. I love the song and think that Branagh did a great job choosing it as a Leifmotif of his movie.

It says:

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 was ever so,
Since summer first was leafy:
Then sigh not so, but let them go,

And be you blithe and bonny,

Converting all your sounds of woe

Into Hey nonny, nonny.
