Keep that candle burnin' bright, mama
I'll be kind of late tonight, mama
There's a yellow moon above me, mama
Shinin' on the one I love, mama

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

While that candle's shinin' high, mama
I'll be with my sugar pie, mama
We'll be comin' home you know and mama
Lookin' for that candle glowin', mama


After we have had the wedding, mama
To that candle we'll be headin', mama
So before we're winin' and dinin', mama
Keep that candle light a-shinin', mama

[Chorus x 2]
