Listen to a Sample of Marlene
rosebud

patsy cline

fool that i was

i'm gonna hold
you to that

dreaming of 
casablanca

worn around
the edges

last love song 
 it flies


a tree grows
in brooklyn

over & over & over

marlene

o.k. you win,
i give up
(you're right,
i'm gone) 

you are

in the city of the angels 
where nobody gets blue 
we have a vague recollection 
of someone like you 
but we couldn't make the funeral 
we had so much to do 
marlene... 
i think that was your name 

yes, our stars are best at shining 
with their backs against the wall 
and we sometimes see them broken 
and sometimes see them crawl 
but we're certain to forget them 
if we don't see them at all 
marlene... 
i think that was your name 

we have our garbo 
coat and scarf and shades 
and norma jean 
her mystery never fades 
we have princess grace 
with her perfect face 
why do we need you? 
you broke the rules... 

in your custom-made tuxedo 
you were hot from head to toe 
they say you walked away from hitler 
and toured with g.i. joe 
but politics are boring 
it was so long ago 
marlene... 
i think that was your name 

we have our garbo 
coat and scarf and shades 
and norma jean 
her mystery never fades 
we have princess grace 
her supermarket face 
why do we need you? 
you broke the rules... 

the procession was in paris 
and another in berlin 
there were diplomats from places 
that you had never been 
but there was no one from the movies 
i guess you weren't a friend 
marlene... 
i think that was your name
