Mario Lanza – Gaudeamus Igitur lyrics

Gaudeamus igitur
iuvenes dum sumus.
Gaudeamus igitur
iuvenes dum sumus.
Post iucundam iuventutem
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.

    It was my school song; the memories come flooding back each time I read the lyrics. We sang in assembly, at end of year also special occasions.
    I am sure many pupils learnt the words by rote and possibly misunderstood their meaning. Strangely enough I only recall the first and last verses being sung, but then this was way back in the 1960's, so perhaps I could be forgiven for having the odd memory lapse.
    Ut Prosim Patriae was the school motto, still is.
    You can look up the school by searching it's motto.
