To The Author’s Readers From His Hubris
I saw Joss Whedon’s Much Ado About Nothing recently. To be perfectly frank and not at all hyperbolic, it was the best adaptation of Shakespeare I’ve ever seen and is so good a movie that you’ll probably melt.
I’ve been listening to the version of Sigh No More, whose music Joss wrote, that features in the film repeatedly (as should you. Maybe even exchange your money for this good via the Internet). In a fit of insomnia I wrote an extra verse, because that is exactly how highly I think of my talents. You can put it either after the first or third verse, and the chorus follows as regular.
Lyrics after the jump.
Speak no more weeping, speak no more
Cease now to seek you pity;
For men in guile make Love sore,
And thus themselves deem witty.
Then sigh not so, but let them go
And be you blithe and bonny
Converting all your sounds of woe
Into Hey, nonny nonny.
