Gaudeamus igitur
Juvenes dum sumus.
Gaudeamus igitur
Juvenes dum sumus.
Post jucundam juventutem
Post molestam senectutem
Nos habebit humus.
Nos habebit humus.

Vita nostra brevis est
Brevi finietur.
Vita nostra brevis est
Brevi finietur.
Venit mors velociter
Rapit nos atrociter
Nemini parcetur.
Nemini parcetur.

Vivant omnes virgines
Faciles, formosae.
Vivant omnes virgines
Faciles, formosae.
Vivant et mulieres
Tenerae amabiles
Bonae laboriosae.
Bonae laboriosae.

Vivat academia!
Vivant professores!
Vivat academia!
Vivant professores!
Vivat membrum quodlibet
Vivant membra quaelibet
Semper sint in flore.
Semper sint in flore.

    This was one of the 2 songs when i was at woodford county high school, the other being 'forty years on' which was a strange choice for a girls' school!

    I went thru the scottish state system in the 60's spending 2 yrs in junior high school then transferring to high school where gaudeamus igitur was the school anthem - i loved it from the beginning and my favourtie subject & teacher (who still wore the gown altho it was a state school) was latin! Funny with being from a strict working class background...
