Lyrics: "from Anacreon"

With the gen'rous youthful soul,
When I quaff the festive bowl,
Richly foaming in my mind,
Hence ye sorrows to the wind.

Friends, the laughing sweets prepare;
Drink a long farewell to care.
All the sweets, if sweets there are,
In a ling'ring life of care.

Taste, ye wretched, if ye will,
I of joy will take my fill,
Bid the sparkling bowl go round
And the praise of Bacchus sound.
