Let Union Be

Sing Along!

Let union be in all our hearts, 
Let union join our hearts as one.
We’ll end the day as we’ve begun,
We’ll end it all in pleasure.
 
Come me boys, let us be jolly,
Drive away all melancholy,
For to grieve it would be folly, 
When we’re met together.
 
Fill the board let there be plenty,
The man who wants to be content,
He eats and drinks enough for twenty,
When we’re met together.
 
Chorus:
Let union be in all our hearts, 
Let union join our hearts as one.
We’ll end the day as we’ve begun,
We’ll end it all in pleasure.
 
Right fala-rala-rala, too-ra-lie-ah,
Right fala-rala-rala, too-ra-lie-ah,
Right fala-rala-rala, too-ra-lie-ah,
When we’re met together.
 
Raise a toast and drain your glasses,
Grab the bottle as it passes,
Water drinkers are dull asses,
When we’re met together.
 
Eat and drink it is quite charming,
Smoke a pipe there is no harm in,
Pleasures we find quite disarming,
When we’re met together.
 
(Chorus)
 
Raise a cup of wine or beer,
To our Sterling oh so dear,
Forty years and we’re still here,
When we’re met together.
 
(Chorus)
 
So cease your quarreling and your fighting,
Evil thinking and back-biting,
All these things take no delight in,
When we’re met together.
 
(Chorus, and coda)
Right fala-rala-rala, too-ra-lie-ah x3
When we’re met together.
