Underneath the lantern
By the barracks gate
Darling, I remember the way
You used to wait

T'was there
That you whispered tenderly
That you love 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 caress you
And press you to my heart

And there neath that
Far off lantern light
I'd hold you tight
We'd kiss goodnight

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 there for me
So patiently
When will I see

My Lili of the lamplight
My own Lili Marlene

Resting in a billet
Just behind the line
Even though we're parted
Your lips are close to mine

You wait where
The lantern softly gleams
Your sweet face seems
To haunt my dreams

My Lili of the lamplight
My own Lili Marlene
My Lili of the lamplight
My own Lili Marlene
