Original text and translations

English.png English text

Fill every glass, for wine inspires us,
And fires us
With courage, love and joy.
Women and wine should life employ.
Is there aught else on earth desirous?
Fill every glass…

German.png German translation

Füll jedes Glas, denn Wein inspiriert
und feuert uns an
mit Mut, Liebe und Freude.
Das Leben sollte Frauen und Wein genießen;
sollte es etwas auf der Erde geben,
das begehrenswerter wäre?
Füll jedes Glas…
