From Old French a las (French hélas), from a (ah) + las, from Latin lassus (weary).

alas

  1. Used to express sorrow, regret, compassion or grief.
    • 1594, William Shakespeare, The Tragedy of Hamlet, Prince of Denmark Act 5, Scene 1
      Alas, Poor Yorick! I knew him, Horatio: a fellow of infinite jest, of most excellent fancy: he hath borne me on his back a thousand times; and now, how abhorred in my imagination it is! my gorge rims at it. Here hung those lips that I have kissed I know not how oft. Where be your gibes now? your gambols? your songs? your flashes of merriment, that were wont to set the table on a roar? Not one now, to mock your own grinning? quite chap-fallen? Now get you to my lady's chamber, and tell her, let her paint an inch thick, to this favour she must come; make her laugh at that.
