Golden lads and girls--

from wiki link below--

Probably the most famous verses in the play come from the funeral song of Act IV, Scene 2, which begins:

    Fear no more the heat o' the sun,
    Nor the furious winter's rages;
    Thou thy worldly task hast done,
    Home art gone, and ta'en thy wages:
    Golden lads and girls all must,
    As chimney-sweepers, come to dust.

Shakespeare's play Cymbeline--
