Text heard on Sample:
It was a lover and his lass
With a hey, and a ho, and a hey nonino
That o'er the green cornfield did pass
In spring time, the only pretty ring time,
When birds do sing, hey ding a ding a ding:
Sweet lovers love the spring.

Between the acres of the rye.
With a hey, and a ho, and a hey nonino,
These pretty country folks would lie,
In spring time, the only pretty ring time.
When birds do sing, hey ding a ding a ding:
Sweet lovers love the spring.

William Shakespeare
