Murphy, Peter - Marlene Dietrich's Favourite Poem Lyrics




My mother loved it so she said
Sad eyed pearl and drop lips
Glancing pierce through writer man
Spoke hushed and frailing hips
Her old eyes skim in creasing lids
A tear falls as she describes
Approaching death with a yearning heart
With pride and no despise

Hot tears flow as she recounts
Her favourite worded token
Forgive me please for hurting so
Don't go away heartbroken no
Don't go away heartbroken no

Just wise owl tones no velvet lies
Crush her velvet call
Oh Marlene suffer all the fools
Who write you on the wall
And hold your tongue about your life
Or dead hands will change the plot
Will make your loving sound like snakes
Like you were never hot

Hot tears flow as she recounts
Her favourite worded token
Forgive me please for hurting so
Don't go away heartbroken no

My mother loved it so she said
Sad eyed pearl and drop lips yeah
Glancing pierce through writer man
Spoke hushed and frailing lips yeah
Old eyes skim in creasing lids
A tear falls as she describes
Approaching death with a yearning heart
With pride and no despise

Hot tears flow as she recounts
Her favourite worded token
Forgive me please for hurting so
Don't go away heartbroken no

    Isn't it a great shame that there are so few comments ? Well, at least there is a scant few that have an IQ above 50.

    Lovely.

    could this song be more beautiful? could this song fill my heart with memories--feelings--of 1990 more?

    Its been so long since I listened to this album.  I was obsessed for a time.  But the words and melodies come back like it was yesterday.  Deep was so innovative and moving.  He absolutely nailed this whole album.  Each song an achievement.

    Derrick Suppes

    Couldn’t agree more. His best solo achievement.

    Derrick Suppes

    Karl Hale deep, Peters best solo achievement.

    claustrophobia begins

    Karl Hale you managed to sum up EXACTLY how I feel! Dead on, man. Goodness, he’s brilliant!
