When the deer come out in the open,
And the stars break away from the day.
When your breath comes in sighs for the softening skies,
That’s when the fireflies play.

The chase is on in the big field
Where the stars have come down from the sky.
The shout and the squeals and leaping appeals
Make the magic of midsummer nights.

Way up in the oak there’s one lonely bug
He’s flashing his heart to the stars.
You’ll never catch him from your place on the ground.
He’s for the sweet angels’ jar,
He’s for the sweet angels’ jar.

When you look at your friend in the jam jar,
Or he walks up and down on you hand,
You’ll see two tan rims on his smoky wings
And the ladybug red of his head.

In bed, when story time’s over,
And that jar is the greatest night light
Out where the deer are shutting their eyes
The fireflies still dance their flight.

Still up in that oak there’s that one lonely bug
Still flashing his heart to the stars,
And you’ll never catch him in your bed on the ground.
He’s for the sweet angels’ jar.
He’s for the sweet angels’ jar.
