Far across deep blue waters, lives an old German's daughter
By the banks of the old river Rhine
Where I loved her and left her, but I can't forget her
I miss my pretty Fraulein.

FrauIein, Fraulein, look up toward the Heaven
Each night when the stars start to shine
By the same stars above you, I swear that I love you
You are my pretty fraulein.

When my memories wander, away over yonder
To the sweetheart that I left behind
In a moment of glory, a face comes before me
The face of my pretty fraulein.

Fraulein, Fraulein, walk down by the river
Pretend that your hand's holdin' mine
By the same stars above you, I swear that I love you
'cause you are my pretty fraulein.

    Post wwii there were a lot of young soldiers returning home from europe especially those who fought in germany who met, fell in love with and in some cases married greman girls. This song is about one such relationship that didnt work out quite so well. Dont worry wingnut, there are still some of us out here who will carry on...

    Hi! The lyrics have better continuity if you change the second "by the same stars" line... To...

    By the waters before you, you know i adore you.

    In the first chorus, its night, and there's stars, and she's staring toward the heavens. In the second chorus, its day, cuz nobody walks by the river at night, too dangerous. In the day, down by the river (side), she'd be staring at the waters, not at the stars above her. ;)

    I sang it right (with my lyric corrections) in the vfw's and legion's across america for 30 years. Carry it on, somebody. :)
