Sitz' ich allein,
Wo kann ich besser sein?
Meinen Wein
Trink ich allein;
Niemand setzt mir Schranken,
Ich hab' so meine eignen Gedanken.

I sit alone

Language: English after the German (Deutsch)

 I sit alone,
 where can I find better?
 My wine
 I drink alone;
 no one sets a limit.
 I have my own thoughts to think.
