Lili Marlene Lyrics - Singles - Marlene Dietrich

Underneath the lantern by the barrack gate 

Darling I remember the way you used to wait 

Twas there that you whispered tenderly 

That you loved me 

You'd always be 

My Lili of the lamplight 

My own Lili Marlene 

 

Time would come for roll call 

Time for us to part 

Darling I'd caress you and press you to my heart 

And there 'neath that far off lantern light 

I'd hold you tight 

We'd kiss good-night 

My Lili of the lamplight 

My own Lili Marlene 

 

Orders came for sailing somewhere over there 

All confined to barracks was more than I could bear 

I knew you were waiting in the street 

I heard your feet 

But could not meet 

My Lili of the lamplight 

My own Lili Marlene 

 

Resting in a billet just behind the line 

Even tho' we're parted your lips are close to mine 

You wait where that lantern softly gleams 

Your sweet face seems to haunt my dreams 

My Lili of the lamplight 

My own Lili Marlene
