As the moments roll
Language: English 
As the moments roll, 
let new joys inspire;
Hebe fill the bowl, 
Orpheus tune the lyre.

Let each cheerful heart
Join the festive train
Thus, before we part,
we'll be young again.

Cares and anxieties we now resign,
Or drown them in a mighty bowl of wine;
When dead, Deucalion may,
if he think good,
Drench our cold carcases in wat'ry flood.
