Lyrics: Catullus, trans Anon

Boy! who the rosy bowl dost pass,
Fill up to me the largest glass,
The largest glass, and oldest wine,
The laws of drinking give as mine:
Still must my ever-thirsty lip
From large and flowing bumpers sip.
Ye limpid streams, where'er ye flow,
Far hence to water drinkers go;
Go to the dull, and the sedate,
And fly the god whose bowers you hate.
