Lyrics: Anon, probably the composer

Around the festive board we social join,
Quaffing full draughts of mirth-inspiring wine;
The toast goes round, and beauty's happy reign
Is here exalted, by each cheerful strain.
But what if beauty should with love conspire,
To treat with proud disdain our am'rous fire;
Dethrone the tyrants, and your freedom gain,
By fixing Bacchus evermore to reign.
