So here I am in the shower singing a good old chestnut, and I realize I don’t know most of the lyrics. I felt a little goofy singing
“Lorelei, Lorelei, made of golden hair.
Sunshine came along with thee, and swallows in the air.”
over and over. Does someone know all of 'em? Or at least a few more verses? (A hundred and fifty years ago, when singers got to the 18th verse, they were usually just getting started.)
And for those of you preparing to write out “Love Me Tender”, may the ghost of Elvis rap you across the knuckles.
