TEXT

Let us drink and be merry, dance, joke, and rejoice,
With claret and sherry, theorbo and voice!

We’ll sport and be free with Moll, Betty, and Dolly,
Have oysters and lobsters to cure melancholy:
 
Then why should we turmoil in cares and in fears,
Turn all our tranquill’ty to sighs and to tears?
Let’s eat, drink, and play till the worms do corrupt us, 
’Tis certain, Post mortem
Nulla voluptas.
