At first, it is from the first verse of Psalm 133: A psalm by David, a song for pilgrimage [to Jerusalem].
At medieval universities it was conceived as a short drinking song.
More abaout this ScribiTrad, Academies, And Drinking: A lecture about Psalm 133,1 held at Ye Olde Black Boy in Kingston Upon Hull on May 1, 2004 ; during the Mudcat Eurogathering.

Sing and enjoy
