ONE LITTLE CANDLE (George Mysels / J. Maloy Roach) Perry Como - 1952 Also recorded by : Chicago; Myron Floren; Jane Froman; Josef Locke. (Backup Vocal) It's better to light just one little candle Than to stumble in the dark Better far that you light just one little candle All you need's a tiny spark If we'd all say a prayer that the world would be free The wonderful dawn on the new day we'll see And if everyone lit just one little candle What a bright world this would be (Let's all light one little candle Why stumble on in the dark) When the day is dark and dreary And your way is hard to find Don't let your heart be weary Just keep this thought in mind (It is better to light just one little candle Than to stumble in the dark Better far to light just one little candle All you need's a tiny spark) If we'd all say a prayer that the world would be free The wonderful dawn of the new day we'll see And if everyone lit just one little candle What a bright world this would be What a bright world this would be (Contributed by Carlene Bogle - May 2005)
