LILY MARLENE Marlene Dietrich Devant la caserne Quand le jour s'enfuit La vieille lanterne Soudain s'allume et luit. C'est dans ce coin la que le soir On s'attendait remplis d'espoir Tous deux Lily Marlene Tous deux Lily Marlene. Et dans la nuit sombre Nos corps enlaces Ne faisaient qu'une ombre Lorsque je t'embrassais Nous echangions ingenument Joue contre joue bien des serments Tous deux Lily Marlene. Tous deux Lily Marlene. Le temps passe vite Lorsque l'on est deux Helas! on se quitte Voici le couvre-feu Te souviens-tu de nos regrets Lorsqu'il fallait nous separer? Dis moi Lily Marlene? Dis moi Lily Marlene? La vieille lanterne S'allume toujours Devant la caserne Lorsque finit le jour. Mais toutme parait etranger Aurais-je donc beaucoup change? Dis-moi Lily Marlene Dis-moi Lily Marlene. Cette tendre histoire De nos chers vingt ans Chante en ma memoire Malgre les jours les ans Il me semble entendre ton pas Et je te serre entre mes bras Lily ... Lily Marlene. Lily ... Lily Marlene. ***** LILI MARLENE (Hans Leip / Norbert Schultze) Lale Anderson - 1940 Vor der Kaserne, Vor dem grossen Tor Stand eine Laterne Und steht sie noch davor So woll'n wir uns da wieder seh'n Wie einst Lili Marlene, wie einst Lili Marlene Unsere beide Schatten Sah'n wie einer aus Das wir so lieb uns hatten Das sah man gleich daraus Und alle Leute soll'n es seh'n Wie einst Lili Marlene, wie einst Lili Marlene Schon rief der Posten, Sie blasen Zapfenstreich Das kann drei Tage kosten Kam'rad, ich komm sogleich Da sagten wir auf Wiedersehn Wie gerne wollt ich mit dir geh'n Mit dir Lili Marlene, wie einst Lili Marlene Deine Schritte kennt sie, Deinen zieren Gang Alle Abend brennt sie, Doch mich vergaus sie lang Und sollte mir ein Leids gescheh'n Wer wird bei der Laterne stehen Mit dir Lili Marlene, wie einst Lili Marlene Aus demm stillen Raume Aus der erde Grund Hebt mich wie im Traume Dein verliebte Mund Wenn sich die spaten Nebel drehn Werd' ich bei der Laterne steh'n Wie einst Lili Marlene. wie einst Lili Marlene ***** LILI MARLENE (English version) (Dietrich/L/S) Marlene Dietrich Outside the barracks by the corner light I'll always stand and wait for you at night We will create a world for two I'll wait for you the whole night through For you, Lili Marlene For you, Lili Marlene Bugler tonight, don't play the Call To Arms I want another evening with her charms Then we will say goodbye and part I'll always keep you in my heart With me, Lili Marlene With me, Lili Marlene Give me a rose to show how much you care Tied to the stem, a lock of golden hair Surely tomorrow you'll feel blue But then will come a love that's new For you, Lili Marlene For you, Lili Marlene When we are marching in the mud and cold And when my pack seems more than I can hold My love for you renews my might I'm warm again, my pack is light It's you, Lili Marlene It's you, Lili Marlene My love for you renews my might I'm warm again, my pack is light It's you, Lili Marlene It's you, Lili Marlene ****** LILI MARLENE (English Version) (Norbert Schultze / J.J. Phillips / Tommy Connors) Anne Shelton - 1942 Hildegarde - 1944 Martha Tilton - 1944 Al Martino - 1968 Underneath the lantern by the barrack gate, Darling I remember the way you used to wait, 'Twas there that you whispered tenderly, That you loved me, you'd always be, My Lili of the lamplight, My own Lili Marlene. Time would come for roll call, time for us to part, Darling I'd caress you and press you to my heart, And there 'neath that far off lantern light, I'd hold you tight, we'd kiss "good-night," My Lili of the lamplight, My own Lili Marlene. Orders came for sailing somewhere over there, All confined to barracks was more than I could bear; I knew you were waiting in the street, I heard your feet, but could not meet, My Lili of the lamplight, My own Lili Marlene. Resting in a billet just behind the line, Even tho'we're parted your lips are close to mine; You wait where that lantern softly gleams, Your sweet face seems to haunt my dreams, My Lili of the lamplight, My own Lili Marlene. When we are marching in the mud and cold, And when my pack seems more than I can hold, My love for you renews my might, I'm warm again, my pack is light, It's you Lili Marlene, It's you Lili Marlene... ***** LILI MARLENE Perry Como - 1944 (This is the story of Lili Marlene, doo, doo, doo doo, doo!) Would you like to hear the story, of a girl that many soldiers know? It's a tale of love in all it's glory, they tell when the lights are soft an' low! Underneath the lamp post by the brigades standing all alone every night you'll see her wait, she waits for a boy who marched away and though he's gone, she hears him say: "Oh promise you'll be true, fare thee well Lili Marlene, 'till I return to you, fare thee well Lili Marlene!" (This is the story of Lili Marlene!) With a kiss she gave her promise, to be constant as the stars above, every soldier knows she's kept her promise, and she has been faithful to her love! (Underneath the lamp post by the brigade standing all alone every night you'll see her wait, for this is the place a vow was made and breezes sing her serenade....) "Oh promise you'll be true, fare thee well Lili Marlene, 'till I return to you, fare thee well Lili Marlene," (This is the story of Lili Marlene! Though wee stems have an ending, no one knows just what the end will be but tonight when twilight is descending, if you'll come along, here's what you'll see....) Underneath the lamp post by the brigade standing all alone every night you'll see her wait, and as they go marching to the fray the soldiers all salute and say: We'll tell him you've been true, fare thee well Lili Marlene, 'till he returns to you, fare thee well.... Lili Marlene!
