Lyrics: Anon, probably the composer

Cupid, come without delay,
Lovely Venus, haste away;
With the nymphs and graces fair,
Antidotes to mortal care.
Thus encircl'd let us be
Ever happy, ever free.

Nor let Bacchus be forgot,
Drunken, laughter-loving sot,
Social god of potent wine,
Making mortal man divine,
Thus encircl'd let us be
Ever happy, ever free.
