“Ein heller und ein Batzen, die waren beide mein, der hellerward zu Wasser, der Batzen ward zu Wein!”
From a German folk song written in 1830, used as a drinking song and for military marches during World War II.
Heller and Batzen were both coins worth a penny each, sometimes less. The rough translation is that one coin was for water and the other for wine.
