A Little Light

Since 1902 there's only been one
A mighty little light of one
It hung in the firehouse way down low
Firemen would prepare in its' 4 watt glow
Oftren tapping it as a good luck charm
Believing it would keep them from any harm
At one hundred years it still lights the way
What would make a light ehave that way
Now lasting longer than the company that made it
Firefighters moved it out of the way to save it
At 880,000 hours its well on its' way
To be there when Jesus comes back some day
Next time you're in California visit Livermore
Pay tribute to the light that burns forever more
So as you can tell, for firemen do it right
It dosen't take a lot of money, just a little light

To Deputy Fire Chief Tom Bramell and crew
Congratulations on a long history of traditions
and to think it all started with a little light

Lightbulb always on
A calm beacon to many
Shining so brightly
