An Ode to Shakespeare
to the tune of ‘Happy Birthday’


Many years ago now
Playgoers went ‘WOW!’
For Shakespeare had been uncovered:
And our lives coined anew.


There are heros who die;
Chaste maidens who sigh;
Great Monarchs to chastise us;
And clowns that are wise!

So on this fine day
We’ll gather all to say
Without Will we all loose
Thus ‘tis Shakespeare we choose


Sung to the traditional air, ‘Happy Birthday to You’
Original Lyrics by Ms. Isabel Barbuk.
