I'm sure we've all (or most of us) have seen the 1943 classic horror movie Frankenstein Meets The Wolf Man (and if you haven't, stop now and watch it). One of the more memorable scenes involves the villagers of Vasaria singing the the traditional folk song Faro-la Faro-Li during the Festival of the New Wine.

Sitting there reading this your probably envisioning that scene right now with Adia Kuznetzoff unforgettable voice. The dancing. The drinking. The traditional outfits. But do you know the words to the song? I'm sure some might. But like me, you might not. Never fear. Now you can play the movie or video clip and sing along like a true professional or impress your friends. Enjoy!


From the film "Frankenstein Meets The Wolfman" (1943)

Come one and all and sing a song

Faro-la, faro-li!

For life is short, but death is long

Faro-la, faro-li!

There'll be no music in the tomb

So sing with joy and down with gloom

Tonight the new wine is in bloom

Faro-la, faro-li!

Tonight we toast our happy host

Faro-la, faro-li!

For he's the man we love the most

Faro-la, faro-li!

He's barrel-chested, dipper-lipped

For drinking wine, he's well-equipped

But where's his chest? It must have slipped

Faro-la, faro-li!

If Franzec never drank at all

Faro-la, faro-li!

He might not care for alchohol

Faro-la, faro-li!

But since he drinks them by the score

He loves his bottles more and more

He even likes them on the floor

Faro-la, faro-li!

Now here's a pair of newly-weds

Faro-la, faro-li!

With love and kisses in their heads

Faro-la, faro-li!

Tonight theres only he and she

Just one and two, as you can see

But very soon they may be three

Faro-la, faro-li!

The wine tonight is nobly blessed

Faro-la, faro-li!

By such a lady and her guest

Faro-la, faro-li!

To them a toast, come drink with me

That they may ever happy be

And may they live eternally

Faro-la, faro-li!
