A well-known glee in a slightly unfamiliar (contemporary) arrangement.
Lyrics: William Shakespeare

Blow, blow thou winter wind,
Thou art not so unkind
As man's ingratitude;
Thy tooth is not so keen
Because thou art not seen
Although thy breath be rude.

Freeze, freeze thou bitter sky,
Thou dost not bite so nigh
As benefits forgot.
Though thou the waters warp,
The sting is not so sharp
As friend remembered not.
