Words to Song "Oh Susanna"

There is an old German folksong that my folks & relatives used to sing and I would accompany them on my accordion in my late teens & 20's that went something like: "Immer noch ein dremshen, immer noch ein dremshen . . . Oh! Susanna Wie ist das Leben doch so schön . . . etc". I don't remember all the words and never saw them written down, but it was clearly a song that had been passed down from our mutual Burgenland immigrant ancestors to a small Minnesota town.

I found a German folksong book that has that same song with the words: "Immer noch ein Tröpfchen" (always another little drop) as opposed to what must have been "Drämchen" (a little dram)and the rest of the words are different also.

Does anybody have the words to the Burgenland version of this old folksong?
