"Immer Wieder Lieb Ich Dich" zur Melodie "Love Me Tender" by Elvis Presley and Vera Madsen( the publisher's wife).
German song sung by Freddy Quinn:
Hear it sung by Gerhard Wendland:

"The 1956 song "Love Me Tender" puts new words to the music of the Civil War song "Aura Lee," published in 1861. "Aura Lee" had music by George R. Poulton and words by W. W. Fosdick. It later became popular with college glee clubs and barbershop quartets. It was also sung at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, New York.
Elvis Presley performed "Love Me Tender" (the updated "Aura Lee") on The Ed Sullivan Show on September 9, 1956, shortly before the single's release and about a month before the movie, Love Me Tender (for which the reworded song was originally written) was released. On the following day, RCA received 1 million advance orders, making it a gold record before it was even released.
The song is credited to Presley and Vera Matson because of the publishing agreement reached for the assignment of royalties (Presley had songwriting input on only a very small number of the many songs he recorded). The principal writer of the lyrics was Ken Darby (Matson's husband). The song was published by Elvis Presley Music. Darby also adapted the Civil War tune, which was in the public domain. When asked why he credited his wife as co-songwriter along with Presley, Darby responded, "Because she didn't write it either."-Wikipedia

A lovely song no matter the words put to it.
