Lorelei [Alternate Take][*]
Back in the days of knights in armor There once lived a lovely charmer Swimming in the Rhine Her figure was divine She had a yen for all the sailors Fishermen and gobs and whalers She had a most immoral eye They called her Lorelei She created quite a stir And I want to be like her I want to be like that gal on the river Who sang her song to the ships passing by She had the goods and how she could deliver The Lorelei She used to love in a strange kind of fashion With lots of hey-ho-de-ho-hi-de-hi And I can guarantee I'm full of passion Like the Lorelei I'm treacherous, yeah, yeah Oh, I just can't hold myself in check I'm lecherous, yeah, yeah I want to bite my initials on a sailor's neck Each affair has a kick and a wallop For what they crave I can always supply I want to be just like that other trollop The Lorelei I want to be just like that other trollop The Lorelei
