Tried my best as I am speaking German as mother tongue but am not the best translator ... so I did not translate word by word but to keep the meaning of the lyrics; it is german writing, a student's song, of around 1860
"Keinen Tropfen im Becher mehr und der Beutel schlaff und leer, lechzend Herz und Zunge. Angetan hat mir’s dein Wein, deiner Äuglein heller Schein, [: Lindenwirtin, du junge! :]"
"Not a single drop left in the cup, and the pouch is sagging and empty, longing heart and tongue, I am longing for your wine, the bright shining of your eyes [Ref: Landlady, you young one]"
Lindenwirtin = "Landlady of the basswood"; in Germany and Austria Pubs and Inns have often been - and still are - named after a landmark or tree nearby the pub; So I guess it was a pub near some basswoods, called "Lindenwirt" , and the young landlady might be the daughter of the landlord
