RurigFan, that is yet another translation of Schubert's song from "Winterreise", like the one given by John in Brisbane 14 Sep 00 - 01:26 AM.
The song the OP had in mind is a very free adaptation by Murgatroyd Farrar of the German song Beim Kronenwirt (MIDI there), the latter song describing a country wedding merrymaking all night through.
