Der greis (The old man)
[music: Joseph Haydn]
[lyrics: Johann Wilhelm Ludwig Gleim

Hin ist alle meine Kraft!
Alt und schwach bin ich;
Wenig nur erquicket mich
Scherz und Rebensaft!

Gone is all my strength!
Old and weak am I;
Only subtly can I be revived by
Lively company and the juice of the grape!

here's my favorite Haydn vocal quartet:

Die Harmonie In Der Ehe

O wunderbare harmonie,
was Er will, will auch Sie.
Er zechet gern, sie auch,
er spielet gern, sie auch,
er zählt Dukaten gern,
und machet den große Herrn,
auch das ist ihr Gebrauch.
O wunderbare harmonie!
