I don't know if this is a song but the words are


Lieber Junge
Bleibe ledig auf dieser Welt
erstmals ist es gesuender
zweitens spart man Geld

Dear son
stay single on this earth
firstly it is healthier
secondly you save money


Trink Trink Bruederlein Trink
Lasset die Sorgen Zu Haus

drink drink brother drink
leave your sorrows at home


Du Du liegst mir am Herzen
Du Du liegst mir im Sinn
