It is the east
Parting is such sweet sorrow
What's in a name
Wisely and slow
Tempt not
Past our dancing days
O! She doth teach the torches
It seems she hangs upon

O Romeo, Romeo
See, how she leans
Not stepping o'er
Hang thee, young baggage
Deny thy father
My only love
Death, lie thou there
For never was a story
