Song Meaning
Verse 1
Back in the days of knights and armor,
There once lived a lovely charmer,
Swimming in the Rhine,
Her figure was divine!
Verse 2
She had a yen for all the sailors,
Fishermen and gobs and whalers,
She had a most immoral eye,
They called her Lorelei.
She created quite a stir,
And I want to be like her!
Verse 3
I want to be like the gal on the river
Who sang her songs to the ships passing by,
She had the goods and how she could deliver,
The Lorelei!
Verse 4
She used to love in a strange kind of fashion,
With lots of "hey, ho-de-ho, hi-de-hi!",
And I can guarantee I'm full of passion,
Like the Lorelei!
Verse 5
Oh I'm treacherous, ya ya,
And I just can't hold myself in check!
And I'm lecherous, ya ya,
I wanna bite my initials on a sailor's neck!
Verse 6
And each affair has a kick and a wallop,
For what they crave I can always supply!
I wanna be like that other trollop
Called the Lorelei!
Verse 7
I wanna be like the gal on the river
Who sang to the ships passin' by,
She had the goods and how she could deliver,
The Lorelei!
Verse 8
She used to love in a strange kind of fashion,
With "hey, ho-de-ho, hi-de-hi!",
Guarantee I'm full of passion,
Like the Lorelei!
Verse 9
Oh I'm treacherous, ya ya,
And I just can't hold myself in check!
Lecherous, ya ya,
I wanna bite my initials on a sailor's neck!
Verse 10
And each affair has a kick and a wallop,
What they crave I can always supply!
I wanna be like that other Lorelei!
