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 loved someone who loved him, too
Who walks with him alone in memory.
He made the night a little brighter wherever he would go,
The Old Lamp-Lighter of long, long ago.

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.
