This little light of mine
I'm gonna let it shine
Out on the street, in the rain, in the heat
When Ray plays his harp in the key of red wine

Ain't seen a dime all day
So I play what the kids wanna hear
While I sponge on Broadway

Shine, let it shine
Even if it burns your eyes
This light of mine is mighty
And I'm gonna let it shine

Even in the dark I'm gonna let it shine
Fine on the end like a holy roman candle
From the hand of a kid dressed in black
Gonna have to get your act together
Get off your banner and figure out your genre
But none of ya'll found it just

Shine, let it shine
Even if it burns your eyes
This light of mine is mighty
And I'm gonna let it shine

Everywhere I go I'm gonna let it shine
Ride on a bike from a marked place to Pike
Black hills of South Dakota, banks of Nova Scotia
This land is my land, it's your land too
Try to hold it in your hand and the sand falls through

Shine, let it shine
Even if it burns your eyes
This light of mine is mighty
And I'm gonna let it shine

God gave it to me and you, I'm gonna let it shine
Are we gonna get along or are we gonna get it on?
Everybody's wrong but who's side is he on
Holy war, what's the score? It doesn't matter anymore
Mirrors in the bathtub 'cause Jesus needs a good scrub

Until he shines
Even if it burns your eyes
This light of mine is mighty
And I'm gonna let it shine

This little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine
Listen to the music, I heard my friend say
If you can't save the world you better try to change it
Maybe use the government, war in middle Asia
Maybe it's you and me my friend

Shine, let it shine
Even if it burns your eyes
This light of mine is mighty
And I'm gonna let it shine

    This is such a great improvement on an old children's song.
    Truth for all adults and esp.religious and political leaders to ponder:
    What legacy are you leaving for your grandchildren?
