Thread Name: Lyr Add: Lili Marlene (an extra clean verse)
Subject: RE: Lyr Add: Lili Marlene (an extra clean verse)
That's correct. It's not an "extra" stanza, but the last one in the (English-language) version Dietrich usually sang. You can hear it e.g. on the Cafe de Paris recording, which is out in CD. As mentioned on another Lili Marleen thread, I don't know who wrote that version, or why she preferred it to the one that was popular during the war.
