If you're just after the version sung in the game, you could just use SCUMM Revisited 2 to rip them and then splice them together.

Oh, I always thought that song was created for the game. So it's a "real" song?

Yes it's a real song!

There must be an easier way! Or else I can just record "what you hear" into Cubase or something. But I wished to find it on the net since almost every other song from the game is available here.

Thank you!

Well, many of the lines have been changed for the game, but it is an actual song.

I don't remember what version it was, but when I had SCUMM Rev on my old computer, and I went to search for dialogue in GF, it would display all the words that were spoken in said file. The version I have now (2) just displays them as file names....any help?

Funny. I've just seen and episode of Desperate Housewives where one of the characters sings this song
Mmm... Patrick Dollaghan appeared in this series too... Grim Fandango presence is unquestionable

Oh ya Flibbo, jajaj, Thanks alot man, Yes it was under the sea,
Magical song in a Magical place, GF is a magical game.

Really guys, this song is really attached to what happened under the sea.
So do the old man, his character with his small light which is fixed to the song alot.

Thanks again Flibbo.

Just in case here they are the whole lyrics:

This little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine.
This little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine.
This little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine,
Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine!

Hide it under some seaweed, NO! I'm gonna let it shine...
Hide it under some seaweed, NO! I'm gonna let it shine...
Hide it under some seaweed, NO! I'm gonna let it shine...
Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine.

Scare away sea monsters, yeah! I'm gonna let it shine!
Scare away sea monsters, yeah! I'm gonna let it shine...
Scare away sea monsters, yeah! I'm gonna let it shine!
Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine.

I'm not gonna let you touch it, NO! I'm gonna let it shine...
I'm not gonna let you touch it, NO! I'm gonna let it shine...
I'm not gonna let you touch it, NO! I'm gonna let it shine...
Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine.

Chepito

I found this song in a banjo play-along book, so it must be real.

Well, the first verse is, the rest has been made up for the purpose of the game
