Thread Name: Lyr Req: Wedding of Lili Marlene
Subject: RE: Wedding of Lili Marlene
I do have both English and German versions of the original "Lili Marlene." It is one of the best loved soldiers' songs in modern history, and was loved and sung by both German- and English-speaking troops.

But what I'm looking for is a sappy, saccharine, tin-pan-alley-generated song that makes reference to the original Lili Marlene and is supposed to be a sequel. It's a curiosity, a bit of fluff, not at all like the original Lili Marlene which is a truly great song.

All the same it's stuck in my memory and I'd love to find it.... Maybe Dick Spotswood (a Washington-area folk historian and DJ) would know. But he's not on the Forum so I thought I'd ask you folks first. Thanks. - Ferrara
