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

Burn that candle, night and day
Burn that candle, light our way
Keep that doorway open wide
Until we come slowly
Strolling side by side

While that candle's burning high, mother
I'll be with my sugar pie, mother
We'll be coming home you know, mother
Looking for that candle glow, mother

[Repeat chorus]

After we have had the wedding, mother
To that candle we'll be heading, mother
So, before we're wining, dining, mother
Start that candle light a shining, mother

[Repeat chorus]

Until we come slowly
Strolling side by side
Till I'm strolling through
That doorway with my bride
