I am the lamplighter

Lyrics

The lamplighter stumbled
And fell onto the street.
He saw a girl so lovely,
He couldn’t keep his feet.

I am the lamplighter
I am the lamplighter
Of the streets by night,
Climb up the ladder
And turn on the light.
At the stroke of midnight
I count up all the lights
And by all accounts
I get more wrong than right.
Two plus two is four,
Four plus four is eight,
Sixteen is eight more,
That’s how I calculate

The lamplighter stumbled
And fell onto the street.
He saw a girl so lovely,
He couldn’t keep his feet.

I am the lamplighter
I am the lamplighter
Of the streets by night,
Climb up the ladder
And turn on the light.
At the stroke of midnight
I count up all the lights
And by all accounts
I get more wrong than right.
Two plus two is four,
Four plus four is eight,
Sixteen is eight more,
That’s how I calculate
