Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

ode to the "lightning bug" or firefly
glitterbug, glitterbug...

You put your lightning into the dark
You really thrill my soul when your light show starts
Glitterbug rattles my brain
Goes spark, spark, spark, that's how you got your name

And you're not bugging me
I love your light
I just love watching
You on summer nights
In the bushes, in the trees
I'll be seeing
Your own brand of electricity

Chorus:
Shakes me up, the way you glow glow
You leave me staring just like a doh doh
Shakes me up, the way you glow glow
I don't wanna miss your phosphorescent light
Shakes me up the way you glow glow
You seem to always be flying solo
Shakes me up the way you glow glow
Do some flashin' tonight
Why don't you hit your light?

You use the dark for your light display
You make a green glow, bright as the Milky Way
I see your glow pop up everywhere
And no other insect can compare

'Cause you're a firefly
Use your tool
Makes me crazy
When you shine so cool

C'mon baby, sparkle bright
You'll be flashing
And summertime will be alright

(Repeat Chorus)

Plug er in, baby
Get it right
Want to see your flash tonight

It's warm out here
And the frogs all croak
They can chant
While my firefly floats

Cracks me up, the way you glow glow
you seem to always be flying solo
Cracks me up, the way you glow glow
I don't wanna miss it when you hit your light
Cracks me up, the way you glow glow
Without you, summer would be just so so
Cracks me up, the way you glow glow
See you flashing tonight
Why don't you hit your light?
