Glowworm

Glowworm
(Johnny Mercer, Paul Lincke)

Tid-Bettes: Bette performed this song along with the Mills Brothers during the Bing Crosby Television Special in 1977.

When the night falls silently
The night falls silently
On forests dreaming

Lovers wander forth to see
They wander forth to see
The bright stars gleaming

And lest they should loose their way
Lest they should loose their way
The glow worms nightly

Light their tiny lanterns gay
They light their lanterns gay
And twinkle brightly

Here and there and everywhere
From mossy dale and hollow
Floating, gliding through the air
They call on us to follow

Shine, little glow worm, glimmer
Shine, little glow worm, glimmer
Lead us, lest too far we wander
Loves sweet voice is calling yonder
Shine, little glow worm, glimmer
Shine, little glow worm, glimmer
Light the path below above
And lead us on to love

Glow little glow-worm, fly of fire
Glow like an incandescent wire
Glow for the female of the species
Turn on the AC and the DC
This night could use a little brightnin’
Light up you little ol’ bug of lightnin’
When you gotta glow, you gotta glow
Glow little glow-worm, glow

Glow little glow-worm, glow and glimmer
Swim through the sea of night, little swimmer
Thou aeronautical boll weevil
Illuminate yon woods primeval
See how the shadows deep and darken
You and your chick should get to sparkin’
I got a gal that I love so
Glow little glow-worm, glow

Glow little glow-worm, turn the key on
You are equipped with taillight neon
You got a cute vest-pocket Mazda
Which you can make both slow and fazda
I don’t know who you took a shine to
Or who you’re out to make a sign to
I got a gal that I love so
Glow little glow-worm, glow
Glow little glow-worm, glow
Glow little glow-worm, glow
Glow little glow-worm, glow
