From Eight Glees expressly composed for ladies, Op. 4.
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 breathe be rude.

Heigh Ho, sing Heigh, Ho unto the green holly;
Most friendship is feigning, most loving mere folly;
Then Heigh Ho the holly; this life is most jolly.

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.

Heigh Ho, sing Heigh Ho, &c
