Lyrics

1. Let ev’ry good fellow now join in our song,
Vive la compagnie!
Success to each other and pass it along,
Vive la compagnie!

Refrain
Vivela, vivela, vive l’amour.
Vivela, vivela, vive l’amour,
Vive l’amour, Vive l’amour,
Vive la compagnie!

2. A friend on your left, and a friend on your right,
Vive la compagnie!
In love and good fellowship, let us unite,
Vive la compagnie! Refrain

3. Now wider and wider, our circle expands,
Vive la compagnie!
We’ll sing to our comrades, in far away lands
Vive la compagnie! Refrain

4. With friends all around us, we’ll sing out our song
Vive la compagnie!
We’ll banish our troubles, it won’t take us long
Vive la compagnie! Refrain

5. Should time or occassion, compel us to part
Vive la compagnie!
These days shall forever, enliven our heart
Vive la compagnie! Refrain
