German.png German text

 Ein truncken man on abelon/
 der fiert ein martrers leben/
 er hat kein rhu,
 noch spat, noch frü/
 nach unfall thut er streben/
 er saufft in sich gantz geitzigklich/
 das Bier und auch den Weine,
 dann wird er vol/
 thumb, taub und thol,
 dann wird er vol/
 recht wie ein wilders schweine.

 Ein grosse plag,
 on widersag/
 das einr sich nit kan füllen/
 ein Ochssenbauch, ein Eselsschlauch/
 kan man mit wasser stillen/
 ein raucher Beer,
 der trinckt nit mehr/
 dann was jm zugehöret/
 ein truncken mann,
 nit ab wil lohn/
 er sey dann gar bethöret.

English.png English translation

 A Drunkard who can't abstain/
 lives a life full of woes/
 he has no rest,
 neither late nor early/
 and strives quite in wain/
 drinking constantly/
 both beer and also Wine,
 and when he gets full/
 he'll go dumb, deaf and dull,
 quite like a wild boar.

 It is a great plague,
 with out doubt/
 that it is impossible to satisfy him/
 The Stomach of an ox, a Donkeys throat/
 you can satisfy with water/
 a temperate man
 never drinks more
 than his due part/
 but a drunkard
 will never leave off/
 never before he is senseless.
