Hamlet's Drinking Song "Ô vin, dissipe la tristesse"

Libretto: Michel Carre and Jules Barbier, based on a French adaptation by Alexandre Dumas, pere, and Paul Meurice

HAMLET
Ô vin, dissipe la tristesse (Oh wine, dissipate the sadness)
Qui pèse sur mon cœur!
A moi les rêves de l'ivresse
Et le rire moqueur!
Ô liqueur enchanteresse,
Verse l'ivresse
Et l'oubli dans mon cœur!
Douce liqueur!
Ô liqueur enchanteresse, etc.
...
La vie est sombre,
Les ans son courts;
De nos beaux jours
Dieu sait le nombre.
Chacun, hélas! porte ici-bas
Sa lourde chaîne!
Cruels devoirs,
Longs désespoirs
De l'âme humaine!
...
Loin de nous,
Noirs présages! etc.
Les plus sages
Sont les fous!... Ah!
