"Lorelei" as written by and Betty/green Comden....
Back in the days of knights and armor,
There once lived a lovely charmer,
Swimming in the Rhine,
Her figure was divine!

She had a yen for all the sailors,
Fishermen and gobs and whalers,
She had a most immoral eye,
They called her Lorelei.
She created quite a stir,
And I want to be like her!

I want to be like the gal on the river
Who sang her songs to the ships passing by,
She had the goods and how she could deliver,
The Lorelei!

She used to love in a strange kind of fashion,
With lots of "hey, ho-de-ho, hi-de-hi!",
And I can guarantee I'm full of passion,
Like the Lorelei!

Oh I'm treacherous, ya ya,
And I just can't hold myself in check!
And I'm lecherous, ya ya,
I wanna bite my initials on a sailor's neck!

And each affair has a kick and a wallop,
For what they crave I can always supply!
I wanna be like that other trollop
Called the Lorelei!

I wanna be like the gal on the river
Who sang to the ships passin' by,
She had the goods and how she could deliver,
The Lorelei!

She used to love in a strange kind of fashion,
With "hey, ho-de-ho, hi-de-hi!",
Guarantee I'm full of passion,
Like the Lorelei!

Oh I'm treacherous, ya ya,
And I just can't hold myself in check!
Lecherous, ya ya,
I wanna bite my initials on a sailor's neck!

And each affair has a kick and a wallop,
What they crave I can always supply!
I wanna be like that other Lorelei!
