GLOW-WORM Adaptation of the 1908 song from the German operetta "Lysistrata" and the Broadway musical "The Girl Behind the Counter" (Original words by Lilla Cayley Robinson / Modern words by Johnny Mercer / Music by Paul Lincke) The Mills Brothers Shine little glow-worm, glimmer, glimmer Shine little glow-worm, glimmer, glimmer Lead us lest too far we wander Love's sweet voice is calling yonder Shine little glow-worm, glimmer, glimmer Hey, there don't get dimmer, dimmer Light the path below, above And lead us on to love! (lengthy instrumental interlude) 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 !! ***** (Paul Linccke / Lilla C. Robinson / Johnny Mercer / Arr. Spike Jones) Recorded by: Spike Jones & his City Slickers (vocal: Red Ingle & Aileen Carlisle) - 1946 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 Their tiny lanterns gay And twinkle brightly Here and there and everywhere Through mossy dale and hollow Hollow, hollow (Hello there, old gal, how are ya) 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 (you take it, girl) Above And lead us on to love. Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh (Turn the page you fathead) And lead us on to love (Contributed/Transcribed by Bill Huntley - October 2005) ***** GLOWWORM (Johnny Mercer) Bette Midler - May 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 lose their way, lest they should lose their way the glowworms nightly light their tiny lanterns gay, they light their lanterns gay and twinkle brightly. Here and there and everywhere, the mossy dell and hollow, floating, gliding through the air they call on us to follow. Shine little glowworm, glimmer. Shine little glowworm, glimmer. Lead us test too far we wander. Love's sweet voice is calling yonder. Shine little glowworm, glimmer. Shine little glowworm, glimmer. Light the path below, above, and lead us on to love. Men's trio: Glow little glowworm, fly of fire. Glow like and incandescent wire. Glow for the female of the specie. Turn on the AC and the DC. This night could use a little brightnin'.When you gotta glow, you gotta glow. Glow little glowworm, glow. Men and Bette: Glow little glowworm, glow and glimmer. Bette sings: "glimmer, 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 glowworm, glow. Glow, little glowworm, turn the key on. You are equipped with tail light neon. One man: You got a cute vest-pocket Mazda All: which you can make both slow and fazdah. I don't know who you took a shine to or who you're out to make a sign to. One man: I got a gal that I love so. All: Glow little glowworm, glow. Glow little glowworm, glow. Glow little glowworm, glow. Glow little glowworm, glow. (Contributed by Andy Edgar - February 2003) *****
