~ Trink ich Wasser werd' ich faul ~
The correct answer to this verse is obvious - Stick with the beer. This a blue/gray, salt-glazed, stoneware stein marked "Germany 94" ca. 1900.
Trink ich Wasser werd' ich faul.
Trink ich Kaffe häng ich's maul.
Trink ich Bier so werd' ich voll.
Trink ich wein so werd' ich toll.
Ich weiß nicht was ich trinken soll.
If I drink water, I become lazy.
If I drink coffee, I become sad.
If I drink beer, I become full.
If I drink wine, I become foolish.
I don't know what I should drink.
