Hello and welcome John, It will be easier to get the lyrics if you start a new thread called "lyrics for Hi Lili Hi Lo" or something like that.

It was a 'hit' for Alan Price after he left the Animals.If no one comes up with the goods I'll get them from the record and post them to you.

HI-LILI, HI-LO
(Words and Music by Branislau Kaper and Helen Deutsch)

A song of love is a sad song, Hi-Lili, Hi-Lili, Hi-Lo
A song of love is a song of woe
Don't ask me how I know
A song of love is a sad song
For I have loved and it's so
I sit at the window and watch the rain, Hi-Lili, Hi-Lili, Hi-Lo
Tomorrow I'll probably love again, Hi-Lili, Hi-Lili, Hi-Lo.

(instrumental interlude)

A song of love is a sad song, Hi-Lili, Hi-Lili, Hi-Lo
A song of love is a song of woe
Don't ask me how I know
A song of love is a sad song
For I have loved and it's so
I sit at the window and watch the rain, Hi-Lili, Hi-Lili, Hi-Lo
Tomorrow I'll probably love again, Hi-Lili, Hi-Lili, Hi-Lo.

From: Giac

Hi,

Been lurking for awhile, but guess the best
way is to jump right in: Hi-Lili, Hi-Lo

A (F) song of love is a (Fdim) sad song (F),
Hi-Lili, Hi-Lili, Hi-Lo (C7).
A song of love is a song of woe,
don't ask me how I know (F).
A song of love is a (Fdim) sad (F) song,
for I (Cm6) have loved (D7) and it's so (Gm).
It sit at the window and watch (F) the rain,
Hi Lili (C7), Hi Lili, Hi Lo (F) (F7)
Tomorrow (Gm) I'll probably love (F) again,
Hi (C7) Lili, Hi Lili, Hi Lo (F).

Sorry if I didn't do the chords correctly.
These are all the words I've heard to it. And,
it is usually sung twice through.

A friend and I used to sing it 30-40 years ago,
I got this out of one of my old songbooks.

Welcome, Giac! Honoured to have you with us! You've been lurking a while, you say, so you already know about the wacky, fun, gentle, opinionated, tolerant, intolerant, poetic and helpful denizens.

About the song:
Would you be able to do-re-mi or ABC the melody for this? I have such a distant, vague recollection of hearing it that even rereading the lyrics hasn't brought it back. Thanks.

Hmmmmm, don't know about the two ways you mentioned, and, to quote Mister Dylan, "I never engaged in this kinda thing before..." but I'll give it a shot.

Hey, how about Dave Prine/Old Town School of Folk Music (yes, John's older brother) (Chicago, 30-40 years ago) type of guitar "tab" --

The top number is the string, with the high E being "1", B being "2", etc. The bottom number is the fret. You're on your own with the time, but is in 3/4, by the way.

Since I play along in F, we'll try it in that key.

  2 1    1  2    1  1 1   1
1 5 1 1 1 5 10 8
A song of love is a sad song

1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1
1 1 5 1 1 5 6 3
Hi Li-ly, Hi Li-ly, Hi-Lo,

2 1 1 2 1 1 1 1 1
1 3 O 1 O 3 10 8 3
A song of love is a song of woe,

2 1 1 1 1 1
1 8 8 8 6 5
Don't ask me how I know.

2 1 1 2 1 1 1 1
1 5 1 1 1 5 10 8
A song of love is a sad song

2 1 1 1 1 1 2
1 8 8 8 6 5 3
For I have loved and it's so,

2 2 1 2 2 1 2 2 1 1
3 3 6 3 3 6 3 1 5 1
I sit at my win-dow and watch the rain

2 2 1 2 2 1 1 1

Hi Li-ly, Hi Li-ly, Hi-Lo

2 2 1 2 2 1 2 2 1 1

To-mor-row, I'll prob-ab-ly love a-gain

2 2 1 2 2 1 1 1
1 1 3 1 1 3 5 1
Hi Li-ly, Hi Li-Ly, Hi-Lo,

(Sing through again and the last time, repeat last two lines, with beginning and ending changes.
  2  2   1    2    2    1  2  2    1 1
3 3 6 3 3 6 3 1 5 1

2 2 1 2 2 1 1 1
1 1 3 1 1 8 5 1
Hi Li-ly, Hi Li-Ly, Hi-Lo.

Hope I haven't messed it up, kinda hard to type and pluck strings at the same time. Good luck. Hope this comes out like I typed it and not just a jumble of numbers.

The blue clicky thing that George Seto gave you is much better.

Mind you, giac, I just plugged my MIDI file into Alan's spiffy program, and it produced all those letters and numbers. Or maybe I should say, Alan's almost spiffy program with a few glitches, like that the ABC should be in the key of G.
If you need a translation/ breakdown of how ABC works, there are a number of sites that tell you, and some of them are listed in the Mudcat Links.

Crowhugger,

I see from another thread that you are a cellist and a dog lover.

To maintain the integrity of the thread: I'd think Hi Lili could be hauntingly lovely if slowed down a bit and played on cello.

I admire your ability. Afraid I don't get along very well with bows. Tried to play fiddle for a bit a few years back, but my dog, whom I raised from birth to 95 pounds, ultimately raised his hackles and growled ferociously as I was making screeching sounds. He dragged my guitar case from another room and pushed the fiddle from my hands. I got the message.

Thanks again for being the first to greet me.

Here's the entry from David Ewen's American Popular Songs
Hi Lili, Hi Lo, words by Helen Deutsch, music by Bronislau Kaper (1952). Introduced by Leslie Caron and Mel Ferrer in the motion picture Lili (MGM, 1953). It was interpolated as a piano episode in the non-musical motion picture Rogue Cop, starring Robert Taylor (MGM, 1954). The song was successfully revived in 1964 in conjunction with the re-release of the motion picture Lili.

I don't remember Chamberlain having a hit off HLHL here in the states, just off the show's theme , "Three Stars Will Shine Tonight". One thing I do remember is him scampering up the hospital steps in the first scenes, going to the MD's locker room, switching his blazer for the doctors' white sportcoat, pumping two quarters into the cigarette machine, and casually lighting up to think about doctor things.

Not only have some of these artists sung it, but the Everly Brothers have too and I can't find it on any site about their music and it is upsetting me.... just thought that should be heard, or read.

HI LILI HI LO: The Everly Brothers

A song of love is a sad song
Hi lili, hi lili, hi lo
A song of love is a song of woe,
   don't ask me how I know.
A song of love is a sad song,
but I have loved and ??????.
I sit by my window, and watch the rain.
Hi lili, hi lili, hi lo.
Tomorrow I'll follow the ??????
Hi lili, hi lili, hi lo.

and that is the only version i have ever heard of that song. I have read lyrics, but that is just about it. But for some reason I feel this is still the best version because I love the Everly Brothers' harmony!!!!

The dream sequence involved Miss Carron dancing with puppets from a travelling show to the tune of Hi Lili. It was so sad and as it was one of my first visits to a cinema I was reduced to tears.

I saw the movie "Lili" with Leslie Caron, Mel Ferrer and Jean-Pierre Aumont along with Zsa Zsa Gabor many years ago. Leslie sings the song to a sock puppet and the words are as follows:

On every tree, there is a bird,
Singing a song of love,
On every tree, there is a bird,
And every one I ever heard,
Could break my heart without a word,
Singing a song of love.

REFRAIN: A song of love is a sad song,
Hi-Lilli Hi-Lilli Hi-Lo,
A song of love is a song of woe,
Don't ask me how I know,
A song of love is a sad song,
For I have loved and it's so,
I sit by my window and watch the rain,
Hi-Lilli Hi-Lilli Hi-Lo,
Tomorrow I'll probably love again,

hi...I'm only 46 but this is one of my earliest movies I can remember seeing...and I still cannot sing the lyrics without crying. It's associated with some deep emotional stuff from back then. I've tried downloading the movie but hadn't had any luck until I tried utube for the song only to find the whole movie there in 11 sections...the initial song is in section 3 with the only difference being ...every tree there sits a bird... The wild thing is how I had always remembered this as a classic tragedy (Romeo and Juliet / negative ending) where now that I've watched it again, it has a beautiful positive guy gets girl ending.

anyway...in case any of all y'all ever visit here again...or for anyone else who has an interest, here is the first of the eleven sections (just click on the following ones as you go...or go right to 3 for the song)
