THE WEDDING OF LILI MARLENE by Tommie Connor & Johnny Reine Recorded by Anne Shelton Verse: Today I saw a wedding Of a girl so sweet and fair, In the quaint old church round the corner, It seemed all the world was there. Chorus: There were tears in the crowded congregation, There were hearts that had loved but all in vain. ‘Twas goodbye to the sweetheart of the nation, At the wedding of Lili Marlene. Men who'd marched where the desert sands are burning, >From Tobruk down the road to Alamein, In their hearts tender mem'ries were returning, At the wedding of Lili Marlene. As she knelt where the candle lights were gleaming, It seemed the choir sang soft and low, "Farewell my angel of the lamp-light, We'll always love you so". Down the aisle came the bride on all her glory, To the strains of her own sweet love refrain. ‘Twas the end of a very lovely story, At the wedding of Lili Marlene.
