English.png English text

Courage in camp and field,
Courage that ne'er will yield,
'Tis the soldier's duty.
Bright eyes beaming,
Goblets gleaming,
Ruddy wine and sparkling gold,
Love that smiles upon the bold,
These are the soldier's booty.
Maiden, fill, our joys to crown,
Care not tho' thy mother frown,
Fill the cup, our joys to crown,
What care we for mother's frown?
Ruddy gold, and sparkling eyes,
Wine that ev'ry care defies,
These are the soldier's booty.
