New Year’s Eve

As Strauss wrote:

My dear guests, all of you however humble your station in life can join me in a toast to a true aristocrat. I give you the king of all wine: champagne!

The liquid gold of France is

Tra la la la la la la

The wine where sunlight dances

Tra la la la la la la

Great kings forget their troubles and princes make their passes

Whenever magic bubbles leap bursting from their glasses

A toast, a toast

And raise your glass with mine

The king of all the wine

The king of all the wine

A toast, a toast, a toast

His Majesty is glorious

Won the war over thirst

Bless the reign uproarious

Of King Champagne the First!

Long life to King Champagne the First!

 

The people all adore him

Tra la la la la la la

And pop their corks before him

Tra la la la la la la

Champagne will keep you smiling above stairs or below them

Its bubbles most beguiling and kisses when you blow them

A toast, a toast

And raise your glass with mine

The king of all the wine

The king of all the wine

A toast, a toast, a toast

His Majesty is glorious

Won the war over thirst

Bless the reign uproarious

Of King Champagne the First!

Long life to King Champagne the First!

 

Of all the world’s great thinkers

Tra la la la la la la

He’s earned the love of drinkers

Tra la la la la la la

The monks in cloistered quiet drink white champagne and rose

It colors up their diet and reddens up their noses

A toast, a toast

And raise your glass with mine

The king of all the wine

The king of all the wine

A toast, a toast, a toast

His Majesty is glorious

Won the war over thirst

Bless the reign uproarious

Of King Champagne the First!

Long life to King Champagne the First!
