�Was geschah ich thu�s euch kund, auf der Wirtin rotem Mund heiss ein andrer brannte.�
(I�ll tell you what happened, on the innkeeper�s red mouth another burned hotly.)

Text is from the fifth verse of 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.
