Shine little glow-worm, glimmer, glimmer
Shine little glow-worm, glimmer, glimmer
Lead us lest too far we wander
Love's sweet voice is calling yonder
Shine little glow-worm, glimmer, glimmer
Hey there, don't get dimmer, dimmer
Light the path below, above
And lead us on to love!

Glow little glow-worm, fly of fire
Glow like an in-can-des-cent wire
Glow for the female of the species
Turn on the AC and the DC
This night could use a little brightnin'
Light up you little ol' bug of lightnin'
When you gotta glow, you gotta glow.
Glow little glow-worm, glow.

Glow little glow-worm, glow and glimmer
Swim through the sea of night, little swimmer
Thou ae-ro-nau-ti-cal boll weevil
Illuminate yon woods primeval
See how the shadows deep and darken
You and your chick should get to sparkin'
I got a gal that I love so
Glow little glow-worm, glow!

(a little music - and finally).

Shine little glow-worm, glimmer, glimmer
Hey there, don't get dimmer, dimmer
Light the path below, above
And lead us on to love!

Moving around like the Pop It crew is the way to the perfect dance for you!
Some primates live in trees and some live on the land and in trees. In this episode we meet KINDERZOO's finest primates like our host Gabby the Gibbon, Deni the Douc Langur, Marty the Mandrill, Colin the Colobus Monkey and Mike the Proboscis Monkey. We also learn how Mike got his large nose in Kinderzoo Tales.
In this episode we go on safari in Africa and meet Polly the Springbok Antelope, Harry the Hippopotamus, Rhiannon the Rhinoceros and we see two of our favourites running around - Debra the Forgetful Zebra and Ryan the Lion. Our KInderzoo Tale this week is about how Gerry the Giraffe got his long neck.


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.
