~ A Gesangl zur Zither ~
This verse in Bayrisch (Bavarian dialect) means that the right music, like a Schuhplattler (Bavarian country dance) gets things going and they're not easy to stop. The stein is marked "309 Germany", ca. 1900.
A Gesangl zur Zither,
a Landla dazua,
ja das kimmt oam in d'Füß
und das lasst am koa Ruh.
A song with the zither,
a Ländler (dance) thereto,
yes that starts moving the feet
and lasts without peace.
