Thread Name: Lyr Req: 'Da trunken sie die liebe lange nacht'
Subject: RE: drinking song, translation
Noreen, Amos - My thanks to you, too!
Noreen's proposition of long live night is convincing; it fits the drinking bout well.
At first I thought I should use danced, but I discarded it. Amos' definition of to spring is exactly what I had in mind when remembering my years as a young student, especially as a freshman filled up with beer.
