Outside the barracks, by the corner light
I'll always stand and wait for you at night 
We will create a world for two
I'll wait for you the whole night through 
For you, Lili Marlene 
For you, Lili Marlene 

 Bugler tonight don't play the call to arms
I want another evening with her charms 
Then we will say goodbye and part
I'll always keep you in my heart 
With me, Lili Marlene 
With me, Lili Marlene 

Give me a rose to show how much you care
Tie to the stem a lock of golden hair
 Surely tomorrow, you'll feel blue
But then will come a love that's new
For you, Lili Marlene 
For you, Lili Marlene 

When we are marching in the mud and cold
And when my pack seems more than I can hold
My love for you renews my might 
I'm warm again, my pack is light 
It's you, Lili Marlene 
It's you, Lili Marlene 

My love for you renews my might 
I'm warm again, my pack is light 
It's you, Lili Marlene 
It's you, Lili Marlene
