Darling Lili Lyrics - Track List
 

Whistling Away the Dark

Often I think this sad old world is whistling in the dark.
Just like a child, who, late from school
Walks bravely home through the park.

To keep their spirits soaring
And keep the night at bay.
Neither quite knowing which way they are going,
They sing the shadows away,

Often I think my poor old heart has given up for good.
And then I see a brand new face,
I glimpse some new neighborhood.

So walk me back home, my darling,
Tell me dreams really come true.
Whistling, whistling,
Here in the dark with you.

So walk me back home, my darling,
Tell me dreams really come true.
Whistling, whistling,
Here in the dark with you.

The Little Birds

"Hi dee, hi dee ho" (French)
"Whee, whee"
Trills the tiny chickadee
It's my turn now.

"Who, who, who are you?"
Hoots the wise old owl, too
"Me, me"
Sings the sparrow in the tree
I'll teach you how.

China or Peru, the thing to do
Is have a picnic every spring
Where you can listen to the birds
Who need no words
To teach you how to sing.

Low, high, high and low
(French)
One, two, all together here we go
It's our turn now.

"Brr, brr, thank you sir"
Goes the scarlet tanager
"Tweet, tweet"
Chirps the cheery parakeet
It's my turn now.

"Hear, hear, lend an ear"
Sing the linnets loud and clear
"Hark, hark"
Look who's singing like a lark
And he knows how.

This is how we pass
Our music class
We learn a little more each day
(French) A language, too
That's how we speak Anglais.

"Whoo-whoo-broodle-oo"
Goes the emerald cockatoo
"Bob white"
Sounds the partridge in the night
It's our turn now.

"Hi ho, hi ho hee"
Goes the tirmouse ...
"Mush, mush"
Sings the dignified old thrush
So take your bow.

If we practice well
Why who can tell
The opera house we'll occupy
And if we harmonize just so
Next thing you know
We might learn how to fly.

And so off we go
(French)
Small birds
Hum the music and the words
It's our turn now.

La la la la la la (etc.)

The Girl in No Man's Land

They tell a story back in London town
That when you hear taps sound
Then all you soldiers have a sweetheart
Who always comes around

When night is falling
She comes calling
The girl in no man's land
She comes to cheer them
And be near them
A dream they understand

Doughboys weary, cold and lonely
Know her as their one and only
The angel who at close of day
Comes round to kiss their cares away

When this is over
You'll discover
The love you've always planned
Until that time
Pretend that I'm
The girl in no man's land

When this is over
You'll discover
The love you've always planned
Until that time
Pretend that I'm
The girl in no man's land

I'll Give You Three Guesses

If you're good at riddle-solving
If you make the claim
That no puzzle ever puzzles you
Here is one that needs evolving
Here's a guessing game
That should be a snap for you to do

I'll give you three guesses
Who loves you
Who's loved you
Right from the start
Not your mother
Who likes to baby you so
And not the girl back home
You used to know, oh no

There's somebody special
Who needs you
Together or apart

Bet you don't need three guesses
And not even two
To know that I'm the one
Sweetheart

There's somebody special
Who needs you
Together or apart

Bet you don't need three guesses
And not even two
To know that I'm the one
Sweetheart

Darling Lili

Darling Lili,
Is an angel from Heaven,
Come to see us, a little while.
Stage door Johnnies wait for her,
The boys encore her.
They just adore
Her style.

Darling Lili,
Doesn't dream of the heart she keeps on breaking,
With just a smile.
But you'd better,
Just forget her.
Toddle off and let her be.
Leave that darling,
Darling Lili, to me

Darling Lili,
Doesn't dream of the heart she keeps on breaking,
With just a smile.
But you'd better,
Just forget her.
Toddle off and let her be.
Leave that darling,
Darling Lili to me

Smile Away Each Rainy Day

Smile away each rainy day
And laugh away your blues
Be like old Mr. Noah
When it starts to pour
Make fun of trouble
Although you"re seeing double

Keep in mind they're silver lined
Those gloomy clouds of grey
Let love light the sky up
Tell the clouds to dry up
And smile away each rainy day

Be like old Mr. Noah
When it starts to pour
Make fun of trouble
Although you"re seeing double

Keep in mind they're silver lined
Those gloomy clouds of grey
Let love light the sky up
Tell those clouds to dry up
And smile away each rainy day

I'll Give You Three Guesses (Reprise)

I'll give you three guesses who loves you
Who's loved you right from the start
Not your mother, who likes to baby you so
And not the girl back home
You used to know, oh no

There's somebody special
Who needs you
Together or apart!

Bet you don't need three guesses
And not even two
To know that I'm the one
Sweetheart!

Skäl

Skäl
A wee duck and doris
L'chaim, here's mud in your eye
Cheers, my dear
Let"s all sing a chorus
For this lovely night going by

Make dry the martinis
A votre and bon appetit

Let's drink to your mother
Your sister and brother
My uncle, your aunt
May they each like the other
But we'll drink it all
By ourselves if you'd rather
So let's have another on me

Skäl
Let's drink and be merry
Tomorrow the barrel runs dry
Down the hatch and after we're down
Bottoms up
That's the best way to fly
Prost, salut!
However you say it
There's all kinds of ways to get high

Let's drink to your mother
Your sister and brother
My uncle, your aunt
May they each like the other
But we'll drink it all
By ourselves if you'd rather
So let's have another on me
Let's have another on me!
