Lili Marlene Lyrics

Underneath the lantern,By the barrack gate
Darling I remember The way you used to wait
T'was there that you whispered tenderly, That you loved
You'd always be, My Lilli of the Lamplight, My own Lilli
Lilli 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 Lilli of the Lamplight, My own
Lilli 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 Lilly of the Lamplight,My own Lilli

Resting in our billets,Just behind the lines
Even tho' we're parted,Your lips are close to mine
You wait where that lantern softly gleams,Your sweet face
To haunt my dreams. My Lilly of the Lamplight,My own
Lilly Marlene.
