Do truncken sie die liebe lange nacht/
biß daß der liechte morgen anbrach/
der helle liechte morgen/
sie sungen und sprungen und waren fro/
und lebten on alle sorgen.

English.png English translation

Then they drank all the dear long night,
until the morning brought the light,
the clear bright morning/
they sang and jumped and where joyful/
and lived without any sorrow.
