$("#dropdown-menu li").click(function() {
    alert(this.id); // id of clicked li by directly accessing DOMElement property
    alert($(this).attr('id')); // jQuery's .attr() method, same but more verbose
    alert($(this).html()); // gets innerHTML of clicked li
    alert($(this).text()); // gets text contents of clicked li
});

I'm not sure what you are after.  I am going to guess below

http://jsbin.com/bivuhaloni/edit?html,js,output
$(function(){
  
  $('.dropdown-submenu ul.dropdown-menu li').on('click', function(){
    
    alert($(this).text());
    
  });
});
