Lyrics: Anon

When love and friendship wake the soul
In cheering song and flowing bowl,
With transport I resign my cares,
Am charmed with music's softer airs.
The vital string return the sound,
The glow of friendship fires around
The social pipe its clouds ascend,
And all the pains of life suspend;
The sparkling liquor fresh supplies,
And raise my spirits to the skies.
Then glad I hear the sprightly theme,
Wine in plenteous bottles teem,
And jovial Bacchus reigns supreme.
