Die schweren Zeiten

Language: German (Deutsch)

Ach, [ach,]1 wie sind die Zeiten schwer,
Man möchte bald vergehen!
Flink Wein daher, flink Wein daher,
das wir sie überstehen!
Flink Wein daher, flink Wein daher,
das wir nicht gar vergehen!
Der Wein hat Schultern groß und stark,
Wirft Sorg' und Plag' und allen Quark,
Mit Saus und Braus
Zum Haus hinaus!
