So many old songs, so little time. For some reason “Glow Little Glow-worm” popped into my head the other day. Go figure – who knows why. So I looked up the music. I can remember I actually had the sheet music for it in my younger years. “Das Glühwürmchen”, known in English as “The Glow-Worm”, is a song from Paul Lincke’s 1902 operetta Lysistrata, with German lyrics by Heinz Bolten-Backers. It was originally translated into English by Lilla Cayley Robinson, in the early 20th century, and was used in the 1907 Broadway musical The Girl Behind The Counter.
