HERE'S TO SONG

The candle flickers towards its last.
Our time together has ended.
The evening sped so swiftly past.
No richer way to spend it.
Before we head our separate ways,
I'd like in truthfulness to say,
You've made this day a special day
With songs and kindness splendid.

CHO: Here's to song and here's to time!
Here's to both with friends of mine!
Here's to friends who have raised their voices high!
Kings have riches widely lain.
Lords have lands, but then again,
We have friends and songs no wealth can buy.

We each a different road must go
To mountain sea or city.
The hour has come for sweet adieu,
But all the more's the pity.
But first unite in hand and heart
And join the chorus ere we part,
For every end leads to a start.
We need not part so sadly. CHO.

Until our paths in future cross,
May blessings kindly greet you.
Until that time I must, alas,
Only in memory meet you.
But often I will sit and stare
And dream about this evening rare,
This company beyond compare,
But now farewell and thank you. CHO.
