German Drinking Songs

FREE Schubert’s Trinklied No. 29 Sheet Music!



Odd enough, Schubert composed this German Drinking Song in Latin. The german composers were known for their playful and sometimes sarcastic humor in their music. Latin, the language of Rome, and more importantly the church, would rarely have been used in its time for songs about worldly pleasure, such as drinking. That’s what makes this one fun!

Lyrics

Edit Nonna, edit Clerus, ad edendum nemo serus;
Bibit ille, bibiit illa, bibbit servus cum ancilla;
Bibit Abbas cum Priore, bibit cuoquus cum factore;
Et pro Rege et pro Papa bibunt vinum sine aqua;
Et pronihil sit in fundo, donec nihil sit in fundo.
Edit Nonna, edit Clerus ad edendum nemo serus;
Bibit illa, bibit illa, bibit servus cum ancilla;
Bibit Abbas cum Priore, bibit coquus cum factore;
Et pro Rege et pro Papa bibunt vinum sine aqua;
Et pro Papa et pro Rege bibunt vinum sine legre,
Bibunt primum et secundo, donec nihil sit in fundo,
Donec nihil sit in fundo, bibunt, bibunt, primum,
Donec, donec nihil, bibunt, bibunt primum et secundo,
Donec nihil sit in fundo, bibunt primum et secundo,
Donec nihil sit in cundo, donec nihil sit in fundo,
Bibunt prinum et secundo, donec nihil sit in fundo,
DOnec nihil, nihil nihil sit in fundo, nihil, nihil.
