"Oh Marlene!" as written by and Jim Pembroke....
Oh I'd stumble through the hail and thunder
Take my seat and I'd sit in wonder
See you again on the silver screen
My precious heart Marlene

My clothes were old, torn and scrappy
Couldn't fit in,I was so unhappy
Romance,no chance,but just one smile from you
Made it all worth while

Oh Marlene! my one and only
Oh Marlene ! picked me up when I was lonely
Oh Mar1ene! you made it Oh Marlene:

Wrote and told you how I felt about you
And how I couldn't live without you
Miles away from me but close at heart
We was never apart

My love undulating and unrepentant
Overwhelming, never ending
Laughing,crying,living & dying
My Goddess and my Queen
Oh Marlene!

(Just like I always needed you
As the flowers need rain
And the rain needs clouds
And clouds need the sun
To make that silver lining)

Your companies' reply arrived stating
That you hadn't been out shooting or making
No more scenes or taken no calls
Since nineteen forty-four
You had retired and given up dating
And that it wern't no use to go on waiting!
You'd made my life all worth living
With all that you were giving,why'd you stop it?!

Oh Marlene! why did you do it
Oh Marlene! my sole intoxication
Oh Marlene! oh you were so bad
Oh Marlene: always need you

(Just like the sun needs the moon
To make a total eclipse
And the day needs the night
And the sea needs the ships.
All these and more so I need you.)
