The song could be addressing how young men of the city, who promise their young loves marriage and a settled life, will not give up the sea. However, as mentioned above, we can view this from two different perspectives. However shakespeare wrote the poem with no bias, and a viewpoint that does not pin-point men or women. They should let the unfaithful men go, forget it, heal their wounds, then be cheerfully again. The latter option seems likely as even so recent as the 1950s, women were expected to ignore and tolerate their husbands' infidelities.

Who is the mysterious man who seems to be so interested in the fate of these ladies?

They should let the unfaithful men go, forget it, heal their wounds, then be cheerfully again.

Beatrice's bitterness has always had me leaning toward this last meaning. Start with the most important point to understanding the poem and you can pull information from all over if it supports the point. Sigh no more, ladies, sigh no more, Men were deceivers ever; One foot in sea, and one on shore, To one thing constant never. Hope this makes it clearer. It is performed by Balthasar, a relatively minor character, the court singer, who is addressing the main manipulators.

Sigh No More by William Shakespeare

Stanza two pleads with the ladies to stop singing melancholy tunes lamenting their loss, before again slagging all men off as being fraudsters since the birth of humanity. Sullivan sold these songs to the publisher for five guineas each but it did not take him long to discover this was a mistake and that if he were paid for songs on a royalty basis, he could increase his income from them substantially.
