~ Trink, wenn Du in Freuden ~
Just good advice (or excuse) for your drinking pleasure on a porcelain stein ca. 1900.
Trink, wenn Du in Freuden.
Trink, wenn Du im Schmerz.
Trink zu alten Zeiten.
Dies erquickt das Herz.
Drink when you are in joy.
Drink when you are in sorrow.
Drink to old times.
This refreshes the heart.
