Also known as Die Lindenwirtin
, the music was written by Franz Wilhelm Abt (1819-1885) and the lyrics by Rudolf Baumbach (1840-1905).
The song itself is of a lovely tale about a student in beer garden. His glass is empty, he has no money but still has Weindurst.
. The landlady says that she give no credit but he could pawn his belongings to carry on drinking. Once he has pawned his satchel, staff, cloak and hat, the beautiful young landlady wants his heart. This he duly offers and is rewarded with a full glass and the young bewitcher sits by his side. The rest is up to your imagination dear surfer!
