English Drinking Songs

FREE Let Us Drink and be Merry Sheet Music!

Life is short, drink. That is the theme of this English Drinking Song written by George Berg.


Let us drink and be merry, dance, joke and rejoice,
With claret canary, the oboe and voice!

The changeable world to our joys is unjust,
And all pleasures are ended when we’re in the dust.

In the mirth let us spend our spare hours and our pence,
For we shall be past it a hundred years hence.
