See how smoothly glides our bark
On the stream's deceitful face,
As smiling in the sunbeam bright
It floats us to a resting place.
Thus down life's uncertain tide
Onward borne by fate we glide.
Let's be merry as we go,
While time and tide together flow.
They are but two. That's far too few,
That's far too few for company,
We'll give the wine, we'll give them wine,
We'll give them wine for company.
