Thread Name: Lyr Req: Wedding of Lili Marlene
Subject: RE: Wedding of Lili Marlene
Joe, I was only showing a (folk) friend in another town this site for five minutes and just to show him what a forum search was, I entered (silly me) my own name...

from memory:
Devant la caserne quand le jour s'enfuit
la vielle lanterne s'allume et luit
c'est dans ce coin là ou le soir
je t'attendrais rempli d'espoir, L.M.

I might have more of it at home, Moira. If so, you'll find it here next tuesday.

I often heard, Lily Marlene was forbidden to play (for radio stations) in Germany during the war (too soft a song for tough soldiers). I don't know if that is a rumor or a fact.
