1. There's a nuclear power plant in our town.
It's a miracle of technologic know-how ..
'Cause, if you live down-wind .. you don't have to plug things in ..
just to let your little light shine .. your little light shine ..
CHORUS: Joggers, bikers, cats and cows .. seldom get run over now ..
since their little light shines!
2. Now, it's awfully clever, but it isn't quite right ..
to use the canary as a night-light!
That UFO down by the plow .. turns out .. was just the cow!
She let her little light shine .. her little light shine ..
3. Well, they promised us safe evacuation
just in case there's a little-bitty melt down! ..
even though, to leave one can't .. without going past the plant!
It'll make your little light shine, your little light shine ..
4. Now, they're building a dump-site at the White House!
And all the public is invited!
Just reply R.S.V.P. .. Washington AC .. DC ..
and watch their little light shine .. their little light shine ..
5. And ... when the earth's not fit for people ..
and there's dumpsites under every porch and steeple
we'll hang a sign .. "GONE FISSION" then .. F-I-S-S-I-0-N!
and let our little light shine . . our little light shine ..
6. Now there's a whole lot of wine won't get tasted
if we all end up nuclear wasted!
Just tell the NRC .. "HONEY .. NO-SIREE!
I'm gonna let my little light shine! .. my little light shine!
JOGGERS, BIKERS, CATS AND COWS ...
LET YOUR LITTLE LIGHT SHINE!!
