Burn That Candle - Bill Haley & His Comets

Burn That Candle

Bill Haley & His Comets

(W. Scott, Decca 29713, 1955)

Keep that candle burnin' bright, mother
I'll be kinda late tonight, mother
There's a yellow moon above, mother
Shinin' on the one I love, mother

Burn that candle, night and day
Burn that candle, light my way
Keep that doorway open wide
Till I'm strollin' thru that doorway with my bride

While that candle's burnin' high, mother
I'll be with my sugar pie, mother
We'll be comin home you know, mother
Lookin for that candle glow, mother

After we have had the wedding, mother
To the candle we'll be headin, mother
So, before we're winin', dinin', mother
Start that candle light a shinin', mother
