Now, boys, we've met tonight,
Rosy hours to borrow;
See, the wine is sparkling bright,
Away with care or sorrow.
Here will we sit awhile,
Quaffing brightest sherry,
And so the time beguile,
Making life thus merry.
Let each man toast a pretty lass,
I drink most gladly;
Winged Cupid's in the glass,
And sit there sighing sadly.
Now drink! Now drink! Now drink!
Hip, hip, hip, hip, hurrah!
Now, boys, we've met tonight,
Rosy hours to borrow;
See, the wine is sparkling bright,
Away with care or sorrow.
Hip, hip, hurrah!
