Beim Weine
Language: German (Deutsch) 
Available translation(s): FRE
Gebt mir des Homeros Leier,
Aber ohne blutge Saiten!
Gebt den Becher, um gehörig
Nach dem Trinkgesetz zu mischen;
Daß ich trunken möge tanzen
Und, noch klug genug im Taumel,
Zu dem Barbiton ein Trinklied
Mit gewaltger Stimme singen.
Gebt mir des Homeros Leier,
Aber ohne blutge Saiten!
