    The song, Lili Marlane started off as a poem, The words were written in 1915 during World War I by Hans Leip (1893–1983), a school teacher from Hamburg who had been conscripted into the Imperial German Army. Leip reportedly combined the names of his girlfriend and another female friend. However, Lili and Marleen were actually both his mistress. The poem was later published as "Das Lied eines jungen Soldaten auf der Wacht" ("The Song of a Young Soldier on Watch") in 1937, now with the two last (of five) verses added. It was set to music by Norbert Schultze in 1938. Tommie Connor later wrote English lyrics. It was recorded by Lale Andersen in 1939 and sold about 700 copies, and was played on Radio Belgrade whitch became the German forces' radio station under the name of Soldatensender Belgrad (Soldiers' Radio Belgrade).
