Song by Marlene Dietrich<br /><br>

Underneath the lantern by the barrack gate<br>

Darling I remember the way you used to wait<br>

Twas there that you whispered tenderly<br>

That you loved me<br>

You'd always be<br>

My Lili of the lamplight<br>

My own Lili Marlene<br>

<br>

Time would come for roll call<br>

Time for us to part<br>

Darling I'd caress you and press you to my heart<br>

And there 'neath that far off lantern light<br>

I'd hold you tight<br>

We'd kiss good-night<br>

My Lili of the lamplight<br>

My own Lili Marlene<br>

<br>

Orders came for sailing somewhere over there<br>

All confined to barracks was more than I could bear<br>

I knew you were waiting in the street<br>

I heard your feet<br>

But could not meet<br>

My Lili of the lamplight<br>

My own Lili Marlene<br>

<br>

Resting in a billet just behind the line<br>

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

You wait where that lantern softly gleams<br>

Your sweet face seems to haunt my dreams<br>

My Lili of the lamplight<br>

My own Lili Marlene<br>

<br>

When we are marching in the mud and cold,<br>

And when my pack seems more than I can hold<br>

My love for you renews my might<br>

I'm warm again<br>

My pack is light<br>

It's you Lili Marlene<br>

It's you Lili Marlene<br>

<br>
