"Glow Worm" — Mills Brothers (live, 1957)

Wrote Flautist: "I've always liked this silly little novelty song (taken from Paul Lincke's operetta 'Lysistrata'), especially as sung by the Mills Brothers, who made it their own, but I never paid much attention to the (modern) Johnny Mercer lyrics [below] until a few days ago when I caught them in the background on some YouTube video or other. They're wonderfully inventive and perfect for this bouncy tune — 'Thou aeronautical boll weevil, illuminate yon woods primeval' just knocks me out. Worth a couple minutes of listening time."

Concur.
