Tune of the Day: Ergo bibamus
German student song
This famous student song was written in 1810 by German national poet Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, and set to music by composer Max Eberwein three years later. To this day, “Ergo bibamus” is still one of the most popular traditional German student songs.
We're gathered together to sing and rejoice,
My Brothers! Let us drink!
