On the ninth day of Shakespeare the Capulets were back

Wherefore art thou Romeo

 

On the tenth day of Shakepeare a man of Verona left
Valentine was his name

To be or not to be
Wherefore art thou Romeo

 

On the eleventh day of Shakespeare Petruchio came again
Listen to me Kate!
Valentine was his name

Rained and it poured
In her shrew-like way
I'm an ass
To be or not to be
Wherefore art thou Romeo

 

On the "Twelfth Night" of Shakespeare two twins were born
Viola and Sebastian
Listen to me Kate!
Valentine was his name
Romeo made of gold
Like it as you do
I love Hermia

Rained and it poured
In her shrew-like way
I'm an ass
To be or not to be
Wherefore art thou Romeo
