Weimar Weltschmerz



“Falling in love again
Never wanted to
What am I to do?
I can't help it”
—Marlene Dietrich
“Falling in Love Again”

Here I go again, my dears—
Falling in Weltschmerz again
What am I do but wallow
In Weimar again?

Love's always been my game—
Down in the bunker again
Play it how they may
They can't help it

Men cluster to me—
Like moths around a flame
So what if their wings burn
I’m just a Luftwaffe dame

Weimar Weltschmerz again—
Never much wanted to
What am I to do?
I just can't help it
