THE OLD LAMP LIGHTER Charles Tobias & Nat Simon Kay Kyser with Michael Douglas THE OLD LAMP LIGHTER by Charles Tobias & Nat Simon Recorded by Kay Kyser with Michael Douglas (vocal) He made the night a little brighter wherever he would go The Old Lamp Lighter of long, long ago. His snowy hair was so much whiter, beneath the candle glow The Old Lamp Lighter of long long ago. You'd hear the patter of his feet as he came toddling down the street, His smile would hide a lonely heart you see. If there were sweethearts in the park he'd pass a lamp and leave it dark Remembering the days that used to be. For he recalls when dreams were new he lov'd someone who lov'd him too, Who walks with him in lonely memory. He made the night a little brighter wherever he would go, The Old Lamp Lighter of long, long ago. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - He made the night a little brighter wherever he would go The Old Lamp Lighter of long, long ago. His snowy hair was so much whiter, beneath the candle glow The Old Lamp Lighter of long long ago. Each year when Christmas rolls around the little man he can be found With children who would come from near and far. The kiddies all love him because he turn'd into a Santa Claus And everyone would get a chocolate bar. And in the snow he'd plant a tree and hang a sign where they could see A Merry Christmas to you all. He made the night a little brighter wherever he would go The Old Lamp Lighter of long, long ago. Coda 1: Now if you look up at the sky you'll understand the reason why The little stars at night are all aglow. He turns them on when night is here, he turns them off when dawn is near, The little man we loved of long ago. Coda 2: Today he's way up in the sky. He watches reindeer passing by, At Christmas time his heart is all aglow. He'll fill the sleigh with lots of toys for little girls and little boys, The little man we loved of long ago.
