Lighthouse tall and grand
Standing on that cold headland

Shine your light across the sea

For a wayward sailor girl like me

Lighthouse man

Guide this sailor back to land

Steer my ship on through the storm

Back to water safe and calm

Sometimes I need a lighthouse for my own

It gets so dark I can't see which way I'm going

Oh lighthouse man I'm all at sea

Shine a little lighthouse light on me

Lighthouse man I'm all at sea

Shine a little lighthouse light on me

Lighthouse man can't help us all

Some he'll save and some will fall

He'll show you where the danger lies

But he can't help it if you capsize

Steer your own ship back to shore
He'll light your way but that is all

This sea is full of misery and woe
Won't you light my lonely way back home

They don't need no light to light their way

Oh woe betide those that say

They think they're safe enough on their own
Drown in murky depths below

We all need a lighthouse for our own

It gets so dark I can't see which way I'm going
Oh lighthouse man I'm all at sea

Shine a little lighthouse light on me
