Can you imagine a Shakespeare sonnet on top of a catchy rock tune?

lyrics

TAKE ALL MY LOVES - Lyrics by W Shakespeare, Music by by Andrei Ionescu

O me! what eyes hath Love put in my head,
Which have no correspondence with true sight;
Or, if they have, where is my judgment fled,
That censures falsely what they see aright?

Take all my loves, my love, yea, take them all:
What hast thou then (my love) more than thou hadst before?
No love, my love, that thou mayst true love call—
All mine was thine before thou hast this more.

How can it? O! how can Love's eye be true,
That is so vexed with watching and with tears?
No marvel then, though I mistake my view;
The sun itself sees not, till heaven clears.

Take all my loves, my love, yea, take them all:
What hast thou then (my love) more than thou hast before?
No love, my love, that thou mayst true love call—
All mine was thine before thou hast this more.

O cunning Love! with tears thou keep'st me blind,
Lest eyes well-seeing thy foul faults should find.
