Any culture vultures out there who know the answer to this?

Brahms's Akademische Festouvertüre cheerfully rips off several German college drinking songs. One of them sounds amazingly like Perry Como's "Catch a Falling Star and Put it in Your Pocket." Does anyone know which German song Brahms is quoting here? Is there any connection between the drinking song and Como's ditty?
