Text:
“Ob Rittersmann, ob Lanzesknecht,
jeder gern sein Schoppen zecht.”

(Whether knight or soldier,
each gladly downs his portion of beer.)

A Landsknecht (or Landesknecht) was a feudal serf used for military purposes by their master. These “soldiers” were often traded between landowners and were, in a sense, the equivalent of modern mercenaries, with the important difference that they were not free to choose their employer.
