He he. Well, the second and third parts of the song are:

The branch on the linden is leafy and green
The Rhine gives its gold to the sea
But somewhere a glory awaits unseen
Tomorrow belongs to me

The babe in his cradle is closing his eyes
The blossom embraces the bee
But soon there's a whisper, "Arise, arise"
Tomorrow belongs to me

So I changed "The Rhine gives its gold to the sea" to "The Schnauzer lies cold in the sea." Schnauzers having big noses, so it is a reference to the kikenvolk we all love so much.
