“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 Ännchen Schumacher (1860-1935), perhaps the most famous landlady/tavern keeper in German history and a popular figure with German students.
