Lili Marlene

The original was a German song. We had a slightly adapted version we sang as cadence when I was in basic. Same words, faster beat, and a final verse that went;
Please Mr. Truman, let the boys go home,
We have conquered Berlin and liberated Rome;
We have subdued the Master Race,
There are no Krauts for us to face;
Oh please let us go home.
