�Zum Sang ein Trunk, zum Trunk ein Sang,

(A drink with your song, a song with your drink,
that�s what one should do all of one�s life.)

A Landsknecht was a feudal serf used for military purposes by his 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.
