The 20th Century's finest Soldier's Song. Lyrics:

LILI MARLEEN

Listen to the bugle, hear its silv'ry call,
Carried by the night air telling one and all, "Now is the time to meet your girl, to meet your girl, to meet your girl", as once I met Marleen...my sweet Lili Marleen.

Underneath the lantern by the barracks gate, there I met Marleen every night at eight...That was the time in early Spring when birds all sing--then Love was king, of my heart and Marleen's, of my heart and Marleen's.

Waiting for the drum beat signaling retreat, walking in the shadows where all lovers meet.
Yes, those were days of long ago--I loved her so, I couldn't know that time would part Marleen, that time would part Marleen.

Then I heard the bugle calling me away, by the gate I kissed her, kissed her tears away.
And, by the flick'ring lantern's light I held her tight, t'was our last night, my last night with Marleen--my last night with Marleen.

Still I hear the bugle, hear its silv'ry call, carried by the night air telling one and all, "Now is the time to meet your girl, to meet your girl, to meet your girl", as once I met Marleen--my sweet Lili Marleen.
