Title: Let us drink and be merry
Composer: George Berg
Original text and translations
Let us drink and be merry, dance, joke and rejoice,
With claret canary, the oboe and voice!
The changeable world to our joys is unjust
And all pleasures are ended when we’re in the dust.
In mirth let us spend our spare hours and our pence,
For we shall be past it a hundred years hence.
