�Wir tranken nicht im �berfluss,
und stehn noch immer grad.
Wenn man nach Hause taumeln muss,
ist�s um das Bier nur Schad.�
(We did not drink too much,
and are still standing up straight.
If you have to stagger homeward,
it�s only harmful for the beer.)
The monkey and tomcat are German symbols for excessive drinking and a hangover, respectively. The fish with which the monkey appears to be defending itself is a pickled herring, an alleged hangover cure.
