Subject(s): Dartmouth College; Youth


LET'S leave our sorrow for to-morrow!
Come, laugh, life now is young,
Let's save our tears for after years
When youth's gay song is sung;
We still are boys, let's take the joys
And drink them deep and strong,
With laughing eyes 'neath cloud-free skies,
Youth's highway is not long.

The heart of you, my comrade true,
Though fast the years may slip,
From my light heart shall never part
In this good fellowship;
For us no care, we'll take the dare
To live like cavaliers,
For what's the folly if we're jolly?
The mirth of youth endears.

Let's court good cheer and banish fear,
Let's play the prince and king,
And drink life's wine in shade and shine
While with strong hearts we sing;
For life is free and mad with glee,
Then violins and lute!
The music light we sing to-night
Will soon enough be mute.
