The German text reads:
Wir haben uns eingeschlichen wie Lämmer
Wir haben regiert wie Wölfe
Man hat uns verjagt wie Hunde
Wir werden verjüngt wie Adler wieder kommen

We sneaked in like lambs
We ruled like wolves
We were chased away like dogs
We'll come back rejuvenated like eagles

Pictorial works produced by transferring images by means of a matrix such as a plate, block, or screen, using any of various printing processes. When emphasizing the individual printed image, use "impressions." Avoid the controversial expression "original prints," except in reference to discussions of the expression's use. If prints are neither "reproductive prints" nor "popular prints," use the simple term "prints." With regard to photographs, prefer "photographic prints"; for types of reproductions of technical drawings and documents, see terms found under "reprographic copies."
