I have heard this ending: The king tries to keep the nightingale, the nightingale gets sick and stops singing, the maid lets the bird out thinking that it will feel better, nightingale escapes, king gets replacement mechanical bird, king starts to die, mechanical bird breaks, nightingale comes back to sing one last song to the king as he dies. The End.

It is stuck in my head as a sad story.
