    Which makes sense—there are sad songs, happy songs, and songs for just about every emotion in between. Line 2: The chimney sweeper is crying in "notes of woe." Line 8: The chimney sweeper says his parents "taught" him the "notes of woe." "Notes of woe" refers to the child's crying, but it is also a metaphor for his miserable life.
