"Danke Schoen" as written by and Bert/gabler Kaempfert....
Danke schoen, darling, danke schoen
Thank you for all the joy and pain
Picture shows, second balcony was the place we'd meet
Second seat, go Dutch treat, you were sweet

Danke schoen, darling, danke schoen
Save those lies, darling don't explain
I recall Central Park in fall
How you tore you dress, what a mess, my heart says danke schoen

Danke schoen, darling, danke schoen
Thank you for walks down Lover's Lane
I can see hearts carved on a tree
Letters intertwined for all time
Yours and mine, that was fine

Danke schoen, darling, danke schoen
Thank you for seeing me again
Though we go on our separate ways
Still the memory stays for always

My heart says danke schoen
Danke schoen, my darling, danke schoen
I said thank you for, hmm, seeing me again
Though we go our separate ways
Still the memory stays for always

My heart says danke schoen
Danke schoen, auf wiedersehen
Danke schoen

    General CommentActually, these are the lyrics.


    Danke Schoen, Darling, Danke Schoen.
    Thank you for all the joy and pain.
    Picture shows, second balcony, was the place we'd meet,
    Second seat, go Dutch treat, you were sweet.

    Danke Schoen, Darling, Danke Schoen.
    Save those lies, Darling don't explain.
    I recall, Central Park in fall.
    How you tore your dress, what a mess, I confess.
    That's not all.

    Danke Schoen, Darling, Danke Schoen.
    Thank you for walks down Lover's Lane.
    I can see, hearts carved on a tree.
    Letters inter-twined, for all time, yours and mine, that was fine.

    Danke Schoen, Darling, Danke Schoen.
    Thank you for seeing me again.
    Though we go on our seperate ways,
    Still the memory stays, for always, my heart says, Danke Schoen.

    Danke Schoen, Oh Darling, Danke Schoen.
    I said, Thank you for seeing me again.
    Though we go- on our seperate ways,
    Still the memory stays, for always, my heart says, Danke Schoen.

    Danke Schoen, Auf Wiedersehen, Danke Schoen

    General Commentfreshprincess090 -
    you are right about those lyrics, i have no idea how but the whoever put the lyrics on the website got two of the verses wrong and didnt repeat the last one.

    and Bloodfox1-
    you were close. danke schoen is german for thanks beautifully. so good job.

    this song is him recalling the good times he had with his 'darling', as she is refered to. but he is saying goodbye to her, as the end states, and he is thanking her for all the great times they had.

    General CommentYeah whats up with the Thank you for funny cards from Spain.?
    It doesn't even sound like that lol

    anyways, this song is about him saying
    thank you to the memories and now
    they go their seperate ways but he will
    always love her.

    I love this song so much, its
    one of my favorite songs.
