Krambambulisten

Wer einstmals uns Gregorianen
Zum Tranke gab Krambambuli
Konnt nicht die Konsequenzen ahnen
Doch heute Abend sieht er sie
Drum singen wir die Melodie
Zum Lobe des Krambambuli
Krambim-bam-bambuli, Krambambuli!

And right here in the Oratory
Krambambuli’s reign has begun
From wine, rum, sugar stems its glory
And once the cooking has been done
We sing together merrily
Our fuel is called Krambambuli
Krambim-bam-bambuli, Krambambuli!

Krambambuli in all its glory
Has come to us for our delight
So joyful and merry is its story
Keeps us awake all through the night
And even from the Holy See
There’s praise for old Krambambuli
Krambim-bam-bambuli, Krambambuli!

So pour me a glass, we drink together
For none of us shall drink alone
Our heads are lighter than a feather
When our fine drinking skills we hone
Tonight is this fraternity
United in Krambambuli
Krambim-bam-bambuli, Krambambuli!
