Catches, canons and drinking songs

to your rude health,

Text: Mortals, learn your lives to measure‥


Mortals, learn your lives to measure
not by length of time, but pleasure,
soon your spring must have a fall,
losing youth is losing all,
then you’ll ask, but none will give,
you may linger, but not live.
