The Song of Seikilos

The Seikilos Epitaph, dating from somewhere in the vicinity of the first century is the world’s oldest surviving complete musical composition, both words and music, in this case, an ancient Greek notation system.

While you live, shine
Have no grief at all
Life exists only for a short while
And time demands its toll
