Lyrics: Anon

Let gaiety sparkle in our eyes,
Each tongue of mirth some token give;
Time is but lent, to use it's wise,
Then while we may, my friends, let's live.
In pleasure's ocean let us sail,
But still let reason be our guide;
Thus, from mad passion's boisterous gale,
Our ship secure shall briskly ride.
