�Die alten Deutschen tranken noch eins, sie wohnten am Ufer d: Rheins,
sie lagen auf der B�renhaut, und tranken immer noch eins, � noch eins!�

(The old Germans drank one more, they lived on the banks of the Rhine,
they laid on bearskins, and always drank one more, � one more!)

Text is derived from a song entitled �Sitz ich in froher Zecher Kreise� (I Sit in the Happy Circle of Revelers), written in 1880 by Ludolf Waldmann.

Landsknechte were feudal serfs used for military purposes by their masters. 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.
