  Mädchen entsiegelten,
  Brüder! die Flaschen;
  Auf! die geflügelten
  Freuden zu haschen,
Locken und Becher von Rosen umglüht.
  Auf! eh die moosigen
  Hügel uns winken,
  Wonne von rosigen
  Lippen zu trinken;
Huldigung Allem, was jugendlich blüht!

Meisjes ontbeugelden,
Broeders, de flessen;
Op! Om gevleugelde
Vreugden te grissen:
Lokken en bekers door rozen omgloeid.
Op! Eer de mossige
Heuvels1 ons wenken,
Zoetheid van rozige
Lippen te drinken;
Hulde aan alles, wat jong is en bloeit!
