BRINDISI

 

 

(All together):

I sing, yes, I sing to the pleasure of life

To the glorious enchantment of beauty.

I sing of the passion, the thrill of youth

When the world is aflame with desire.

 

(Soprano and Alto): I sing to love’s sweet rapture

(Men only): That fills the soul with wonder.

(Soprano and Alto): To eyes so brightly alluring

(Men only): They set my heart on fire.

(Soprano only): So join me, dear comrades, dear friends and smile

To the glory and power of love.

(Alto and Men): Sing to the glory and power of love,

Smile to the glory and power of love.

 

(All together):

Dear friends, my dear friends let us gladden the night

With the sound of compassion and laughter.

Life is a treasure, yes, treasure and joy

Let us live for this moment of peace.

Then sing and feast so joyously for life and youth are fleeting

And life itself is a flower that faith will nurture and grow.

So take what the moment of pleasure will grant

For there is joy nothing but this.

 

 

(Men only):

Ah, we sing to the pleasure and joy of life

To this night of compassion and laughter.

We take what the moment of peace will grant

For there is joy nothing but this.

 

(All together):

Then sing and feast so joyously for life and youth are fleeting

And life itself is a flower that faith will nurture and grow.

We sing to the pleasure and joy of life

To this night of compassion and laughter

We’ll take what the moment of peace will grant

For there is joy nothing but this.

Ah!- Ah!- - - nothing but this

Ah!- Ah!- - - nothing but this

Ah! ------- Ah!-------
