You can help us modernize! The present website has been online for a very long time and we want to bring it up to date. As of April 20, we are $4,600 away from our goal of $15,000 to fund the project. The fully redesigned site will be better for mobile, easier to read and navigate, and ready for the next decade. Please give today and join dozens of other supporters in making this important renovation possible!

Trunken müssen wir alle sein

Set by Gary Bachlund , "Trunken müssen wir alle sein", 2009 [medium voice and piano] [ sung text checked 1 time]

Note: this setting is made up of several separate texts.

Trunken müssen wir alle sein!
Jugend ist Trunkenheit ohne Wein;
Trinkt sich das Alter wieder zu Jugend,
So ist es wundervolle Tugend.
Für Sorgen sorgt das liebe Leben,
Und Sorgenbrecher sind die Reben.

Da wird nicht mehr nachgefragt!
Wein ist ernstlich untersagt.
Soll denn doch getrunken sein,
Trinke nur vom besten Wein!
Doppelt wärest du ein Ketzer
In Verdammnis um den Krätzer.
