"Lili Marleen" as written by Marius Goring and Norbert Schultze....
Vor der Kaserne
Vor dem gro?n Tor
Stand eine Laterne
Und steht sie noch davor

So wolln wir da uns wiedersehn,
Bei der Laterne wolln wir stehn,
Wie einst, Lili Marleen
Wie einst, Lili Marleen

Underneath the lantern
By the barrack gate,
Darling I remember
The way you used to wait:

It was there that you whispered tenderly,
That you loved me
You'd always be
My own Lilli Marlene.
My own Lilli Marlene.

Time would come for roll call,
Time for us to part,
Darling I'd caress you
And press you to my heal;

There' neath that far off lantern light,
I'd hold you tight,
We'd kiss "Good-night",
My own Lilli Marlene.
My own Lilli Marlene

I knew you were waiting in the street,
I heard your feet
But could not meet.
My own Lilli Marlene
My own Lilli Marlene

Aus dem stillen Raume,
Aus der Erde Grund
Hebt mich wie I'm Tr?e
Dein verliebter Mund.

Wenn sich die sp?n Nebel drehn,
word ich bei der Laterne stehn
Wie einst, Lilli Marleen.
Wie einst, Lilli Marleen.
