The same website also gives a different version of the Latin text. 188.8.131.52 (talk) 16:57, 11 May 2011 (UTC)
A slightly different version of this same poem / drinking song appears in a 1579 music print by Gerlach-Montanus (Nuremberg), set by the composer, Orlando di Lasso. This date precedes the birth dates of both Sirmond and Aldrich. In this version, the full text reads: "Si bene perpendi, causae quinque sunt bibendi: hospitis advertus, sitis praesens atque futura, et vini bonitas, ne perdas tua jura, ac propter pulices multiplicato vices." See A LassoGA 11,37 or Peter Bergquist (ed.), _Motets from Printed Anthologies and Manuscripts_, 1570-1579. (M. K. Eagen, UNC-CH).
