Take me to the Fireflies ball on a Friday night open thread.
For the young and decidedly hip: Gaga
“Firefly” is song composed by Cy Coleman and lyrics by Carolyn Leigh. Song is the original track from Tony Bennett’s 1959 album In Person! accompanied by the Count Basie Orchestra. Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett covered the song for their jazz collaborative album, Cheek to Cheek.
The lyrics are everything.
I call her Firefly
Cause, oh, my
She radiates moonglow
Wants none of that noon glow
She starts to glitter
When the sun goes down
Bout eight p.m., it’s mayhem
She switches the brights up
Lights up and gives me a call
Take me to the Fireflies ball
But when I get her there
Set her there
Do I get to pet her there
And grab me some glow
No, she’s a gad about, mad about
Luring every lad about
While leaving me moaning low
Oh, Firefly, why can’t I
Latch on to you no how
Oh, how I love you but gee
While you set the night on
Firefly, shine a little light on me
The Truth Must be Told
Your contribution supports independent journalism
Please take a moment to consider this. Now, more than ever, people are reading Geller Report for news they won't get anywhere else. But advertising revenues have all but disappeared. Google Adsense is the online advertising monopoly and they have banned us. Social media giants like Facebook and Twitter have blocked and shadow-banned our accounts. But we won't put up a paywall. Because never has the free world needed independent journalism more.
Everyone who reads our reporting knows the Geller Report covers the news the media won't. We cannot do our ground-breaking report without your support. We must continue to report on the global jihad and the left's war on freedom. Our readers’ contributions make that possible.
Geller Report's independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe our work is critical in the fight for freedom and because it is your fight, too.
Please contribute to our ground-breaking work here.
