Si bene commemini, causse sunt quinque bibendi; Hospitis adventus, prjesens sitis, atque futura, Aut vini bonitas, aut quaelibet altera causa.
If all be true that I do think,
There are five reasons we should drink;
Good wine — a friend — or being dry—
Or lest we should be by and by—
Or any other reason why.
