Lyrics

Who’s that woman at the window pane

Watching the children play their games

Still as a statue day and night

Pale as a ghost in the soft moonlight

 

OH-oh-oh Lily Marlene

OH-oh-oh Lily Marlene

Prettiest girl the Northwood's seen

OH-oh-oh Lily Marlene

 

Once she was a big city girl

Desired by the fashion world

Walt met her on a quiet street

Danced with her swept her off her feet

Chorus

 

When Walt returned from foreign ports

He brought her north to his resort

Dances with her in the deep of the night

Bathed in the glow of the northern lights

Chorus

 

She stays upstairs and waits for Walt

Away from the dandies who waltz about

Fifty years at her window sill

In fifty years she’ll be there still

Chorus
