DRINKING SONG, by            
First Line: Hasten hither, saki mine
Last Line: He shall find eternal youth.
Alternate Author Name(s): Ubada; Ubada, Muhammed Ibn

Hasten hither, saki mine,
And deflower the virgin wine;
Take my silver (any, be bold!)
And convert it into gold.

Let the drunkard (hark to me!)
Firmly graps this recipe
In his fingers, and in truth
He shall find eternal youth.
