'THE BEDSHEETS OF LILI MARLENE' Lyrics-Joe Hurley

"You say that you're leaving me now
Well I promise you this
You wont forget my dark side
The Thistle lingers in the kiss

Yeah the party in Paris fell through
As we crashed on the Champs-Elysees
But I'll never hide my tattoo
Love's to honour and obey

Now the cafes have all seen your face
from Rome to Berlin
But nothing wil ever prepare you
for the Bedsheets of Lili Marlene

well, The Bible on the table was lonely
Years of neglect and old dust
It was Judas who first said If only
I could just learn how to trust

You loved all those tales in the Scriptures
But you never took them to heart
Your face wasn't clear in the pictures
At the motel where we chose to part

Now the cafes have all seen your face
From Rome to Berlin
But nothing will ever prepare you
For the Bedsheets of Lili Marlene

I'll get the fire roaring
We'll have a drink and a chat
Dying alone Christmas morning
There's nothing romantic 'bout that

Now The Cafes have all seen your face
From Rome to Berlin
But nothing will ever prepare you
For the Bedsheets of Lili Marlene

No no, nothing will ever prepare you
For the Bedsheets of Lili Marlene. "
