From Student Prince


(D A,A,A; G/A D,D,D; G/A D,D;D G,G;G D,D;D A,A)
D                                        A         7
Ein zwei drei vier, lift your stein and drink your beer!
Ein zwei drei vier, lift your stein and drink your beer!

D                                              A°                A7
Drink! Drink! Drink! To eyes that are bright as stars when they're shining on me
D                                                          A
Drink! Drink! Drink! To lips that are red and sweet as the fruit on the tree
A7                        D          A7    D
Here's a hope that those bright eyes will shine
G    D   G    D   Bm         A
Lovingly, longingly soon into mine

C7         F             C7       F
May those lips that are red and sweet
   D7         G      E7       A (7)
Tonight with joy my own lips meet

G             D       A7    D
Drink! Drink! Let the toast start!
G         D       A7   D
May young hearts never part!
G             D
Drink! Drink! Drink!
    G      Em   D       Em/E7          A7
Let ev'ry true lover salute his sweetheart!

Drink! Drink! Drink! To arms that are white and warm as a rose in the sun
Drink! Drink! Drink! To hearts that will love one, only when I am the one
Here's a hope that those soft arms will twine
Tenderly, trustingly soon around mine

All I ask is the right to see
Those smiling eyes beguiling me -

Drink! Drink! Let the toast start! May young hearts never part!
Drink! Drink! Drink!
    G D   Em6 D Em6 D A7 E9    A7   D    A       D
Let ev'ry true lover salute his sweetheart! Let's drink!

Nice addition CHICO!!! Thank You!

Wonderful memories, of this song shared with my father. It may be "musical comedy" or "light opera" but it is full of all the robust good spirits of a Heidelberg beer hall.

Sincerely,
Gargoyle

foolestroupe - are your merry band related to dwarves by any chance? I detect a strong dwarven influence in the drinking song you posted. Compare it, for instance, to that old classic dwarf mining song:

Gold, GOLD, GOLD!

Ah - but if you sing during the verses, you can only drink during the refrain!

Subtle, isn't it?

We need another Sigmund Romberg. In notes accompanying a cd on Romberg music, Naxos printed the comment: "Sigmund Romberg was a colorful and gregarious character in that bygone era of show business when melodic content really counted."

Mario Lanza did not have the temperament for opera and tended to oversing, but his work in operettas and musicals was excellent.

Thanks for the song. It brings back memories for me too.

Does anyone have the complete lyrics to the intro to the Drinking Song that begin with:

To begin we're marching while our throats are parching under fruit trees arching in the month of May
For there's go good fellow when he's feeling mellow to the beer so mellow would say nay.

Are these what you want for the beginning of "Drink, Drink, Drink"?

Ein zwei drei vier (Ein zvai dry feer..is the pronunciation Deutsch)
Lift your stein and drink your beer
Ein zwei drei vier
Lift your stein and drink your beer

By the way, whoever wrote the first post, it isn't

"To eyes"..."To lips"....It's TWO eyes and TWO lips.

Guest, your ignorance of the score is showing-

TO eyes
TO lips

(Dorothy Donnelly wrote the words, Sigmund Romberg just wrote the music)

Guest requested this last August. I believe it to be correct, but...

Scene: The Inn. The Students enter and call for their favorite waitress, Kathie.

To the inn we're marching,
For our throats are parching.
Under fruit-trees arching,
In the month of May...
Oh, there's no good fellow,
When he's feeling mellow,
To the beer so yellow
Will say: "Nay."
All in step we're swinging,
While we join in singing
With our voices ringing
In a merry rhyme.
There is joy abounding
In our song resounding
While our steins are pounding
All in time.

Kathie! Kathie!
K-K-K-K-K-K-Kathie!

Kathie enters and sings, "Come Boys, Let's All Be Gay, Boys." For reasons too obvious to mention, in contemporary productions this becomes, "Come Boys, Live For Today, Boys."
