No. 9 - Song - Adele and Chorus - "On Y Revient Toujours" (The Student's Song)

MIDI File

Adele: What life so sweet, what life so free
As that the merry student leads
The happiest of fellows he
Who little has and little needs
For naught to him is wealth or rank
And naught to him is King or Queen
His mistress Art content to thank
If she bestows the laurel green.
"On y revient toujours"
We come with hearts grown fonder
Back to the life that each of us loves best
For here are home and rest
When far afield we wander
Sing, comrades all, "On y revient toujours"
Sing, comrades all, "On y revient toujours."
Chorus: "On y revient toujours"
We come with hearts grown fonder
Back to the life that each of us loves best
For here are home and rest
When far afield we wander
Sing, comrades all, "On y revient toujours"
Sing, comrades all, "On y revient toujours."
   
Adele: Let kingdoms shake and tumble down
Let markets fall, if so they choose
What matter when a last half-crown
Is all the student has to lose
Today perhaps, with well-fill'd purse
He dines like any millionaire
Tomorrow when his luck is worse
He laughs at fate and lives on air
"On y revient toujours"
We come with hearts grown fonder
Back to the life that each of us loves best
For here are home and rest
When far afield we wander
Sing, comrades all, "On y revient toujours"
Sing, comrades all, "On y revient toujours."
Chorus: "On y revient toujours"
We come with hearts grown fonder
Back to the life that each of us loves best
For here are home and rest
When far afield we wander
Sing, comrades all, "On y revient toujours"
Sing, comrades all, "On y revient toujours."
   
Adele: And when the world has hardly used
Some comrade of the days gone by
Who, finding help by all refused
With broken heart creeps home to die,
The students take him by the hand
And cheer and comfort to the end
For he who seeks Bohemia's land
Will never fail to find a friend.
"On y revient toujours"
We come with hearts grown fonder
Back to the life that each of us loves best
For here are home and rest
When far afield we wander
Sing, comrades all, "On y revient toujours"
Sing, comrades all, "On y revient toujours."
Chorus: "On y revient toujours"
We come with hearts grown fonder
Back to the life that each of us loves best
For here are home and rest
When far afield we wander,
Sing, comrades all, "On y revient toujours"
Sing, comrades all, "On y revient toujours."
