This song has got its own Wikipedia article,
although it is auf deutsch.

There is much talk of an East Prussian origin.
Then there is controversy about "one collector says that
his father translated it from Lithuanian"
which story no one has been able to prove.

The Nazis, according to this article,
cracked down on publication of this song,
because it was anti-military.
Fascinating stuff.
