lyrics

First verse translation:
A friend of mine told me he lacked everything he should have.
His life's not going well, he doesn't have what he needs.
He has no peace, no happiness, he has no shoes, no clothes.
He has no life, he has no death, he has no home, he has no bread.
He has no wife, he has no child, he has no luck, he has no health.
He has no honor, he has no money, he doesn't have this world or the world to come.

Naturally, you'll see every pauper always laughing and delighted, and he's always happy at every turn.
He says "To hell with the whole world, because I go by 'Live it up, pauper, troubles are nothing to worry about!'"
