Lyrics SHINE,
LITTLE GLOW WORM,

LOVE'S SWEET VOICE
IS CALLING YONDER!
SHINE,
LITTLE GLOW WORM,
GLIMMER GLIMMER,
SHINE,
LITTLE GLOW WORM,
GLIMMER GLIMMER!
LIGHT THE PATH,

AND LEAD US ON
TO LOVE!

GLOW,
LITTLE GLOW WORM,
FLY OF FIRE,
GLOW
LIKE AN INCANDESCENT WIRE,
GLOW
FOR THE FEMALE OF THE SPECIE,
TURN ON
THE AC AND THE DC
THIS NIGHT

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 TAIL LIGHT NEON
YOU GOT
A CUTE VEST POCKET MAZDA
WHICH YOU CAN MAKE
BOTH SLOW OR '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
WHO I LOVE SO,
GLOW,
LITTLE GLOW WORM,
PUT ON A SHOW
WORM,
GLOW,
LITTLE GLOW WORM,
GLOW.

Lyrics THE ORIOLE WITH JOY
WAS SWEETLY SINGING,
THE LITTLE BROOK
WAS BABBLING IT'S TUNE,
THE VILLAGE BELLS AT NOON
WERE GAILY RINGING,
THE WORLD SEEM'D BRIGHTER
THAN A HARVEST MOON.
FOR THERE WITHIN MY ARMS
I GENTLY PRESSED YOU,
AND BLUSHING RED,
YOU SLOWLY TURNED AWAY.
I CAN'T FORGET THE WAY
I ONCE CARESSED YOU,
I ONLY PRAY
WE'LL MEET ANOTHER DAY.
I'VE REALLY COME A LONG WAY
FROM THE CITY,
AND THOUGH MY HEART'S BREAKING
I'LL BE BRAVE.
I'VE BROUGHT THIS BUNCH
OF FLOWERS,
I THINK THEY'RE PRETTY,
TO PLACE
UPON A FRESHLY MOLDED GRAVE.
IF YOU WILL SHOW ME, FATHER,
WHERE SHE'S LYING,
OR IF IT'S FAR,
JUST POINT IT OUT TO ME.
SAID HE,
SHE TOLD US ALL
WHEN SHE WAS DYING
TO BURY HER
BENEATH THE APPLE TREE

IN THE SHADE
OF THE OLD APPLE TREE
WHERE THE LOVE IN YOUR EYES
I COULD SEE.
WHEN THE VOICE THAT I HEARD,
LIKE THE SONG OF THE BIRD,
SEEM'D TO WHISPER
SWEET MUSIC TO ME.
I COULD HEAR
THE DULL BUZZ OF THE BEE,
IN THE BLOSSOMS
AS YOU SAID TO ME,
WITH A HEART THAT IS TRUE,
I'LL BE WAITING FOR YOU,
IN THE SHADE OF
THE OLD APPLE TREE.

Lyrics FELLOWS, IF YOU'RE ARN,
I WILL SPIN A YARN
THAT WAS TOLD TO ME
BY ABLE SEAMAN JONES.
ONCE HE HAD THE BLUES,
SO HE TOOK A CRUISE
FAR AWAY FROM NIGHT-CLUBS
AND FROM SAXOPHONES.
HE SAID, YO HO,
I'VE MADE A CERTAIN PORT,
AND WHEN YOU TALK
ABOUT REAL HE-MAN SPORT.

HOT GINGER AND DYNAMITE,
THERE'S NOTHING BUT THAT
AT NIGHT,
BACK IN NAGASAKI,
WHERE THE FELLERS CHEW TOBACCY,
AND THE WOMEN
WICKY-WACKY WOO.
THE WAY THEY CAN ENTERTAIN,
WOULD HURRY A HURRICANE,
BACK IN NAGASAKI,
WHERE THE FELLERS CHEW TOBACCY
AND THE WOMEN
WICKY WACKY WOO..

IN FUJIAMA,
YOU GET A MAMA,
THEN YOUR TROUBLES INCREASE.
IN SOME PAGODA,
SHE ORDERS SODA,
EARTH-SHAKE MILK-SHAKES,
TEN CENTS A PIECE.
THEY KISSY AND HUGGY NICE
OH, BY JINGO!
IT'S WORTH THE PRICE,
BACK IN NAGASAKI,
WHERE THE FELLERS CHEW TOBACCY,
AND THE WOMEN
WICKY-WACKY WOO.

NOW WHEN THE DAY IS WARM,
YOU CAN KEEP IN FORM
WITH A BOWL OF RICE
BENEATH A PARASOL.
EVERY GENTLE MAN
HAS TO USE A FAN,
AND THEY ONLY USE SUSPENDERS
IN THE FALL.
THAT'S WHERE THE GIRLS
DON'T THINK OF RINGS AND FURS,
GOSH, IT'S THE NICEST PLACE
THAT EVER WERES..

THEY GIVE YOU A CARRIAGE FREE,
THE HORSE IS A JAPANEE,
BACK IN NAGASAKI,
WHERE THE FELLERS CHEW TOBACCY,
AND THE WOMEN
WICKY-WACKY WOO.
THEY SIT YOU UPON THE FLOOR,
NO WONDER YOUR PANTS GET SORE,
BACK IN NAGASAKI,
WHERE THE FELLERS CHEW TOBACCY,
AND THE WOMEN WICKY-WACKY WOO.

WITH SWEET KIMONER,
I PULLED A BONER,
I KEPT IT UP AT HIGH SPEED..
I GOT RHUMATICS,
AND THEN PSYATICS,
HALATOSISIS,
THAT'S GUARANTEED,
YOU JUST HAVE TO ACT
YOUR AGE
OR WIND UP INSIDE A CAGE,
BACK IN NAGASAKI,
WHERE THE FELLERS CHEW TOBACCY,
AND THE WOMEN
WICKY-WACKY WOO.

WITH AN ICE-CREAM CONE
AND A BOTTLE OF TEA,
YOU CAN REST ALL DAY
BY THE HICKORY TREE.
BUT WHEN NIGHT COMES ROUND,
OH GOSH, OH GEE,
MOTHER, MOTHER, MOTHER,
PIN A ROSE ON ME.

THOSE PRETTY MAMAS
IN PINK PYJAMAS,
THEY TRY TO GIVE YOU A KISS.
THOSE TORRID TEASES
IN B.V.D.SES,
HEAVEN HELP A SAILOR
ON A NIGHT LIKE THIS!
NOT TOO GENTLE
AND NOT TOO ROUGH,
BUT YOU'VE GOT TO TELL THEM
WHEN YOU'VE HAD ENOUGH,
BACK IN NAGASAKI,
WHERE THE FELLERS CHEW TOBACCY,
AND THE WOMEN
WICKY-WACKY WOO!

Lyrics PUT ON YOUR OLD GREY BONNET
WITH THE BLUE RIBBON ON IT,
AND WE'LL HITCH OLD DOBBIN
TO THE SHAY.
THROUGH THE FIELDS OF CLOVER,
WE'LL GO DOWN TO DOVER
ON OUR GOLDEN WEDDING DAY.

Lyrics TILL THEN,
MY DARLING,
PLEASE WAIT FOR ME.
TILL THEN,
NO MATTER WHEN IT MAY BE,
ONE DAY I KNOW
I'LL BE HOME AGAIN,
PLEASE WAIT
TILL THEN.

OUR DREAMS WILL LIVE
THOUGH WE ARE APART,
OUR LOVE WILL ALWAYS STAY
IN OUR HEARTS.
TILL THEN,
WHEN ALL THE WORLD WILL BE FREE,
PLEASE WAIT FOR ME.

ALTHOUGH THERE ARE OCEANS
WE MUST CROSS
AND MOUNTAINS
THAT WE MUST CLIMB,
I KNOW EVERY GAIN
MUST HAVE A LOSS
SO PRAY THAT OUR LOSS
IS NOTHING BUT TIME.

TILL THEN,
WE'LL DREAM
OF WHAT THERE WILL BE,
TILL THEN,
WE'LL CALL ON EACH MEMORY.
TILL THEN,
WHEN I WILL HOLD YOU AGAIN,
PLEASE WAIT
TILL THEN.
