    Watch her out there on display
    Dancing in her sleepy way
    And all her visions start to play
    The icicles of our decay
    Marlene, drink it to Marlene

    Fading flowers in her hair
    She's suffering from wear and tear
    She lies in waterfalls of dreams
    And doesn't question what it means
    Marlene, we drink it to Marlene

    And all along the desert shore
    She wanders further evermore
    The only thing that's left to try
    She says to live I have to die
    Marlene, we drink it to Marlene
    Marlene, we drink it to Marlene

    She whispers sadly, "Well, I might"
    And holds herself so very tight
    Then jumping from an unknown height
    She merges with the liquid night
    Marlene, Marlene
    We drink it to Marlene

    Her lovers wrap her mist in furs
    And tell her what she has is hers
    When they take her by the hand
    She slips back in the desert sand
    Our Marlene, we drink it to Marlene, Marlene

    What she needs is made of glass
    And lovers worship as they pass
    And each one says, "Well, now she's mine"
    But all drink solitary wine
    Marlene, Marlene

    Fare thee well, fare thee well
    Marlene, Marlene
    Fare thee well, fare thee well, fare thee well
    Marlene, Marlene
    Fare thee well, fare thee well
