|~ Wie herrlich lebten am grünen Rhein ~|
|Those were the carefree days for the knights and their squires as depicted on this heavy relief stein marked "Germany 1400" ca. early 1900's.|
Wie herrlich lebten am grünen Rhein
die Ritter mit ihren Knappen,
sie tranken vom besten Bier und Wein
und thäten es nicht berappen.
How wonderfully lived by the green Rhine
the knights with their squires,
they drank the very best beer and wine,
but didn't pay up for it.
