Lyrics: Anon

Crown'd with roses, let us quaff
The gen'rous liquor, jest and laugh;
Let our lasses dance around
To the cittern's sportive sound,
Each a Thirsis in her hand;
Let the boys too join the band;
One shall sing and one shall play,
All shall merry be and gay.

Cupid, with his golden hair,
Ever young and ever fair;
Bacchus, sprightly god and gay;
Venus, queen of love and May.
These our choir shall join, and bring
With them everlasting spring.
Beauty, mirth and wine and love
Ev'ry sorrow shall remove.
