Lyrics:
To Anacreon in Heaven, where he sat in full glee,
A few Sons of Harmony sent a petition;
That he their Inspirer and Patron wou'd be;
When this answer arrived from the Jolly Old Grecian;
"Voice, Fiddle, and Flute,
No longer be mute,
I'll lend you my name and inspire you to boot,
And besides I'll instruct you like me, to intwine,
The Myrtle of Venus with Bacchus's Vine!"

"The Anacreontic Song" was the official song of the Anacreontic Society, an 18th-century gentlemen's club of amateur musicians in London, and later became the tune to which the Star Spangled Banner lyrics were set to become the National Anthem of the United States of America (in 1931).

From our Fall 2009 concert at the Academy of Medicine with humorous musical storyteller Andy Offutt Irwin.
