He's a lean old man with a gentleman's hand
on the floor (the dance floor)
The other dancers sigh as he walks on by
oh he's smooth oh yeah how he moves

Oh how he glides and takes flight
Oh watch this Firefly shine bright

She's a woman of age that came off the stage
to settle down, in this tiny town
Her style & grace it aint common place
and she's no---body's fool

Oh how she glides and takes flight
Oh firefly shine bright

Oh the years have passed since they both have danced
On that floor,
Though they both are gone their glow lingers on in that hall,
it illuminates the floor

Oh how they glide and take flight
Ooh fireflies shine bright

In this hall tonight
Firefly delight
Illuminate the night
Oh fireflies shine bright
