Sing we and chant it
Language: English 
Sing we and chant it 
While love doth grant it.
Not long youth lasteth,
And old age hasteth. 
Now is best leisure 
To take our pleasure.
All things invite us
Now to delight us.
Hence, care, be packing!
No mirth be lacking!
Let spare no treasure
To live in pleasure.
