Ein Prosit lyrics

Lyrics to Ein Prosit, the most-played song at the Munich Oktoberfest

This is possibly the best-know German classic of all time –all respect to Nina and her 99 Luftballons.

The Hofbräuhaus-Lied (Hofbräuhaus Song) is a classic of the German oom-pah form and a principal ode to Munich's famed beer hall.
It was written in 1935, not by a Munich local, but a Berliner known as Wilhelm "Wiga"Gabriel.
hofbrauhaus lied lyricsWiga's other "hits"were unfortunately patriotic marching anthems for the Third Reich.

But bugger that, no-one seems to remember when the song comes 'round at Oktoberfest anyway.
Here's a rather campy version performed by local duo Michael Hartl and Marianne Reiner.

German Hofbräuhaus-Lied Lyrics

Da, wo die grüne Isar fließt,
Wo man mit "GrüßGott"
dich grüßt,
Liegt meine schöne
Münch'ner Stadt,
Die ihresgleichen nicht hat.
Wasser ist billig, rein und gut,
Nur verdünnt es unser Blut,
Schöner sind Tropfen gold'nen Wein's, Aber am schönsten ist eins:

In München steht ein Hofbräuhaus: Eins, zwei, g'suffa!
Da läuft so manches Fäßchen aus:
Eins, zwei, g'suffa!
Da hat so mancher brave Mann:
Eins, zwei, g'suffa!
Gezeigt was er so vertragen kann
Schon früh am Morgen fing er an
Und spät am Abend kam er heraus
So schön ist's im Hofbräuhaus.

Da trinkt man Bier nicht aus dem Glas, Da gibt's nur "die große Maß!"
Und wenn der erste Maßkrug leer, Bringt dir die Reserl bald mehr.
Oft kriegt zu Haus die Frau 'nen Schreck,
Bleibt der Mann mal länger weg.
Aber die braven Nachbarsleut',
Die wissen besser Bescheid!

In München steht ein Hofbräuhaus: Eins, zwei, g'suffa!
Da läuft so manches Fäßchen
aus:
Eins, zwei, g'suffa!
Da hat so mancher brave Mann:
Eins, zwei, g'suffa!
Gezeigt was er so vertragen kann
Schon früh am Morgen fing er an
Und spät am Abend kam er heraus
So schön ist's im Hofbräuhaus.

Wenn auch so manche schöne Stadt Sehenswürdigkeiten hat,
Eins gibt es nirgendwo wie hier:
Das ist das Münchener Bier.
Wer dieses kleine Lied erdacht
Hat so manche lange Nacht
über dem Münchener Bier studiert
Und hat es gründlich probiert.

In München steht ein Hofbräuhaus: Eins, zwei, g'suffa!
Da läuft so manches Fäßchen
aus:
Eins, zwei, g'suffa!
Da hat so mancher brave Mann:
Eins, zwei, g'suffa!
Gezeigt was er so vertragen kann
Schon früh am Morgen fing er an
Und spät am Abend kam er heraus
So schön ist's im Hofbräuhaus.


English Hofbräuhaus-Lied Lyrics
"the Hofbräuhaus-Song"

There, where the green Isar flows,
Where you greet with "Greetings God!",
Lies mybeautiful Munich city,
The likes of which you've never seen.
Water is cheap, pure and good,
But it thins our blood,
Far better is a drop of golden wine,
But the best is this:

In Munich is the Hofbräuhaus:
One, two, drink up!
There so many kegs are emptied:
One, two, drink up!
There is always some good man:
One, two, drink up!
Who wants to show how much he can drink
He starts in the early morning
And late in the evening he comes out
Becasue it's so nice at the Hofbräuhaus.

There you don't drink out of a glass,
There's only "the big beer krug!"
And when the first beer krug is empty,
The waitress Reserl soon brings you more.
Often the women at home get a fright,
That the man's gone so long.
But the good neighbours,
They know better!

In Munich is the Hofbräuhaus:
One, two, drink up!
There so many kegs are emptied:
One, two, drink up!
There is always some good man:
One, two, drink up!
Who wants to show how much he can drink
He starts in the early morning
And late in the evening he comes out
Becasue it's so nice at the Hofbräuhaus.

Although so many other cities,
Have things to see,
There's one thing that's nowhere else but here: That's Munich beer.
Who thought up this little song
Has for so many long nights
Studied Munich's beer
And has comprehensively tried it out.

In Munich is the Hofbräuhaus:
One, two, drink up!
Where the kegs are always flowing:
One, two, drink up!
There is always some brave man:
One, two, drink up!
Who wants to show how much he can drink
He starts in the early morning
And late in the evening he comes out
Becasue it's so nice at the Hofbräuhaus.
