ORIGINAL LYRICS
transcribed by Manfred Helfert.


We three, we're all alone,
Living in a memory,
My echo, my shadow, and me.
We three, we're not a crowd,
We're not even company,
My echo, my shadow, and me.

What good is the moonlight,
The silvery moonlight,
That shines above?
I walk with my shadow,
I talk with my echo --
But where is the one I love?

We three, we'll wait for you
Even 'til eternity,
My echo, my shadow, and me.

[RECITATION:] We three, we're all alone,
Seem like we living in a memory,
That's my echo, my shadow, and me.
We three, we ain't no crowd,
Fact is, we ain't even company,
That's my echo, my shadow, and me.

You know, I been wonderin'
What good is the moonlight,
That silvery moonlight,
That shine way, way up above?
Yeah, I been walkin' with my shadow,
talkin' with my echo --
But where that gal that I love? [END OF RECITATION]

We three, we'll wait for you
Even 'til eternity,
My echo, my shadow, and me.
