Let's say you're lost in a park, sure
You can give in to the dark or
You can trip a little light fantastic with me
When you're alone in your room
Your choices just embrace the gloom
Or you can trip a little light fantastic with me

For if you hide under the covers
You might never see the day
But if a spark can start inside your heart
Then you can always find the way
So when life is getting dreary
Just pretend that you're a leerie
As you trip a little light fantastic with me

"What's a leerie"
"Why it's what we lamplighters call ourselves of course"
"Leeries trip the lights and lead the way!"

Now when you're stuck in the mist, sure
You can struggle and resist or
You can trip a little light fantastic with me
Now say you're lost in the crowd, well
You can stamp and scream out loud or
You can trip a little light fantastic with me

And when the fog comes rolling in, just
Keep your feet upon the path
Mustn't mope and frown or worst lie down
Don't let it be your epitaph

So when life is getting scary, be your own illuminary
Who can shine the light for all the world to see
As you trip a little light fantastic with me

"A leerie loves the edge of night
Though dim to him the world looks bright
He's got the gift of second sight"
"To trip a little light fantastic"
"A leerie's job's to light the way"
"To tame the night and make it day"
"We mimic the moon, yes that's our aim"
"For we're the keepers of the flame

And if you're deep inside a tunnel
When there is no end in sight
Well just carry on until the dawn
It's darkest right before the light

As you trip a little light fantastic
Won't you trip a little light fantastic
Come on, trip a little light fantastic with me

Oy, oy, oy

You've got it, now let's get you all back home

Now if you're life is getting foggy
That's no reason to complain
There's so much in store, inside the door at 17 Cherry Tree Lane

So when troubles are incessant
Simply be more incandescent
For your light comes with my lifetime guarantee
As you trip a little light fantastic
Won't you trip a little light fantastic
Come on, trip a little light fantastic with me
Trip a little light fantastic
