Subject: RE: Songs by Hans Eisler
A sinagble closer translation than the one posted by Q would be extremely difficult. For instance, Tucholsky uses the double meaning of 'Mark': das Mark: the marrow of the bone, die Mark: unit of money.

For you the broth, for them the (Mark)marrow.
For you the penny, for them the mark.
