Lyrics

[Tony Bennett]
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

'Bout 8 p.m., it's mayhem
She switches those brights up
Lights up and gives me a call
Takes me to the fireflies' ball

But when I get her there
Set her there
Do I get to pet her there
Grab me some glow

No, she's a gad about
Mad about
Luring every lad about
While leaving me moaning low

Firefly
Why can't I latch on to you know how?
Oh, how I love you but gee
While you set the night on, firefly

Shine a little light on me

[Lady Gaga]
He calls me "firefly" 'cause oh, my
I radiate moon glow
Want none of that noon glow
Start to glitter when the sun goes down

'Bout 8 p.m., it's mayhem
I switch those brights up
Light up and give him a call
Take him to the fireflies' ball

But when I get her there
Set her there
Do I get to pet her there
Grab me some glow

No, she's a gad about
Mad about
Luring every lad about
While leaving me moaning low

[Tony Bennett]
Oh, firefly
Why can't I latch on to you know how?

[Both]
Oh, how I love you but gee
While you set the night on, firefly

[Tony Bennett]
Shine a little light on

[Lady Gaga]
Shine a little light on

[Tony Bennett]
Shine a little light on me

[Lady Gaga]
On me

[Tony Bennett]
In the morning
