Gaudeamus igitur!

with 8 comments

Ek het nie gedink hierdie dag gaan óóit aanbreek nie. Maar uiteindelik kom alle dinge tot ‘n einde. Wat ‘n wonderlike gedagte!

Gaudeamus igitur
Iuvenes dum sumus.
Gaudeamus igitur
Iuvenes dum sumus.
Post iucundam iuventutem
Post molestam senectutem
Nos habebit humus —
Nos habebit humus.

Geniet die naweek. Ek gaan.

    Vir die Latynse troglodiete (vanaf wikipedia):

    De Brevitate Vitae (on the Shortness of Life), perhaps more commonly known by its first words Gaudeamus igitur (“Therefore let us rejoice”) is a song in Latin that is a popular academic commercium song in many European countries. In many modern Western nations it is sung as an anthem at University graduation ceremonies. The melody is inspired by a medieval hymn by Strada, bishop of Bologna in 1267. Although this sounds very dignified, the song has been adopted by students as a form of prank and the lyrics are not very dignified.

    It has been known as a beer-drinking song in Italian, German, Dutch and Swiss (and also British, Swedish, Estonian, Finnish and even Australian) universities by many generations of students. In Belgian and Dutch universities, where drinking and singing is actually a common activity for students, it is one of the ‘official’ songs which are sung as the opening of these singing activities. It is also the opening song for all Swiss student associations part of the Society of Swiss Students (SES, Schw-STV).

    The lyrics reflect an endorsement of the bacchanalian mayhem of life (especially life as found in fraternities and sororities) while simultaneously retaining the grim knowledge that one day we will all die. The song contains humorous and ironic references to sex and death, and many versions have appeared following efforts to bowdlerise this song for performance in public ceremonies. In private, students will typically sing ribald words.
