FREE Five Reasons Sheet Music!

Looking for a reason to drink? Henry Purcell composed this 17th century English Drinking Song for just that purpose. You don’t have just one reason, but Five Reasons!


If all be true that I do think,
There are five reasons,
There are five reasons we should drink.
Good wine, a friend, or being dry,
Or lest we should be by and by;
Or any other reason,
Or any other reason,
Any other reason why!
