Lili Marlene
Lyrics & Music by: M.David, N. Schultze, H. Leip

Outside the barracks
By the corner light
Darling I remember how
I'd wait for you at night
There we'd create a world for two
I'd wait for you
The whole night through
Was there that you'd whisper tenderly
That you loved me
You'd always be
Be my Lili Marlene
Be my Lili Marlene

I'd give you a rose to show I care
And wind it through your golden hair
Then we would say goodnight and part
I'll always keep you in my heart
With me Lili Marlene
With me Lili Marlene

My Lili of the lamplight
My own Lili Marlene
