Bevè, bevè compare
Towards the end of the 19th century, a score for piano and singing was found. It was entitled “Our Fathers were drinking”.
Presumably the singing has even more ancient origins since the musical scores of popular songs only spread at the end of the 19th century.
This is a typical tavern stornello of which there are several versions.
Its origin is assumed to be of Trentino origin.
The text enhances drinking and the joy of being in company of good people and friends.
Be careful, however, that the problem of alcohol abuse is very serious. Today the age at which alcohol and spirits are consumed has fallen to 13 years. So maximum alert Please!
This song was sung by many popular folk performers and belongs to those songs that have been handed down from generation to generation.
