  • Lyrics: You'll only see her once a year Because her schedule is tight It's only when the summertime draws near She'll shed her beauty on the night The noise she makes you will not hear But with her phosphorescent light She'll try to help your vision to be clear And keep your spirits very bright Oh firefly, when you spread your wings You make little rings That light up the evening sky Oh firefly, when you spread your wings You make nighttime sing When you start to fly, you're never shy I wish you'd never die When autumn cuts in like a knife Her wings will slowly start to fray And then the earth will take her as its wife Into the ground she'll melt away But the glowing, vibrant life you saw That kept her busy yesterday Is only resting till the ice will thaw Then she'll be back again to play Oh firefly, when you spread your wings You make little rings That light up the evening sky Oh firefly, when you spread your wings You make nighttime sing When you start to fly, you're never shy I know you'll never die © Music, Neil Wolfe; Lyrics, Stevie Holland
