Subject: RE: Two Old German Rhymes - INFO??

"sich in etwas schicken" = "sich in sein Schicksal f├╝gen" = "put up with" or "accept one's fate". I doubt that this expression can be found in German after the first world war. That makes line 2 of the chorus to be the better fitting "don't be angry and accept your fate". The rest is fine.
