one summer night he'll light a lantern
he'll catch a tiny firefly in a jar
set her dancing on the mantle
like a piece of star

see how the boy lays low
he wants the shiver in her wing
see him hiding in the willow
playing with lightning

you don't know me
I don't know you
and the summer's come again
my oh my, the sparks are flyin'
all over Lousianne

there's lots of fishes in the sea
I swear I'm gonna catch one in my hand
make him dance for me
in the fryin' pan

you don't know me
I don't know you
and the summer's come again
my oh my, the fish are flyin'
all over Lousianne

in your eyes there's a light
it comes and it goes without a sound
if I hold on tight
it's gonna burn me to the ground

you don't know me
I don't know you
and the summer's come again
my oh my, the sparks are flyin'
all over Lousianne
our lives go by like sparks are flyin'
all over Lousianne

    General CommentSuch a great tune. Jenny's voice so good...delicate poetry too...I don't know specifically what place Lousianne is, I suppose some city or a town, something like that. If anyone knows better, please guide.
