Landsknecht's Drink

Oh great Tavern! Beautiful and wondrous inn What countless prizes Lie in wait inside! Your vault keeps from us Our treasured Mead, Wine, and Beer! Oh great Mead! Pour from the keg Fill up your tankard Drink to the Coin brothers! Toast to your Paymaster Salute your paying prince! Oh great Wine! Delicate to the sip That is, to the gentile For us Landsknecht! Red wine is the blood And the taste is our communion! Oh great Beer! How we hear your cry Begging to be quaffed You give us such a fright! Way into the night Slipping and falling! Oh great Coin! Our most beloved What we’d kill for All hail the Paymaster! For his contracts bring Our treasured Mead, Wine, and Beer!
