~ A Zigarr' thuat ma rauchen ~
The Pfalz is a region in southwestern Germany along the Rhine River known for cigar making, but everyone knows the best cigars come from Cuba and that's what's advertised on this Mettlach stein mold number 3185 and decor number 1282 and dated 1909.
A Zigarr' thuat ma rauchen
zumeist aus der Pfalz,
denn a echte Habanna,
kratzt ein'n selten im Hals.
The cigar that I smoke
is usually from the Pfalz,
but an authentic Havana,
rarely scratches my throat.
