�Keinen Tropfen im Becher mehr,
und der Beutel schlaff u. leer.�

and the purse is slack and empty.)
Text is from the poem �Die Lindenwirtin�, written by Rudolph Baumbach in 1876 and set to music in 1878 by Franz Wilhelm Abt. The poem honors �nnchen Schumacher (1860-1935), perhaps the most famous landlady/tavern keeper in German history and a popular figure with German students.
