1  The red wine flows, the north wind blows,
The wintry sun is sinking,
The Bear, cold star, beams frost afar,
Let's be drinking, brothers, drinking!

2  Huge pine-logs light the chimney bright,
With sparks are crackling, blinking;
Our noble Rhine gives us our wine,
Let's be drinking, brothers, drinking!

3  Shriek an' thou will, O north wind chill,
Through hut, and house, and palace;
But from the cold, good greybeard old,
Oh! spare each flask and chalice.
