Information About Glow Little Glow Worm
Also known as "The Glow Worm", the song was originally written and performed by Paul Lincke's operatta. The song was originally in German, but was translated into English and then, became a popular American song. The original English translation was done by Lilla Cayley Robinson.
The best known recorded version was by The Mills brothers with the Hal McIntyre orchestra in 1952.
The song's lyrics may be bit confusing, since a firefly is not a worm, but this may have been lost in translation from German to English. When Johnny Mercer translated the song, he used an animal that all Americans could identify with, the firefly.
Another part of the song that would confuse today's audience would be "You've got a cute little pocket mazda, which you can make both slow and fasta". The explanation to this is that prior to being a well-known automotive brand that arose in the 1970s, "Mazda" was a name trademarked by General Electric for a line of incandescent light bulbs.
