I call her firefly, 'cause, oh my,
She radiates moon glow,
Wants none of that noon glow,
She starts to glitter when the sun goes down.

By eight p.m., it's mayhem;
She switches the brights up, 
Lights up and gives me a call,
"Hey, take me to the fireflies ball."

But when I get her there, set her there,
Do I get to pet her there and grab me some glow?
No, she's a gadabout, mad about lurin' ev'ry lad about
While leavin' me moanin' low.

Oh firefly, why can't I latch on to you no how?
Oh how I love you, but gee
While you set the night on fire, fly,
Shine a little light on me.
