  • When you wish upon a star
    Your dreams will take you very far
    But when you wish upon a dream
    Life ain't always what it seems
    What'd you see on a night so clear
    In the sky so very dear

    You're a shining star
    No matter who you are
    Shining bright to see
    What you could truly be

    Shining star come in to view
    Shine its watchful light on you
    Give you strength to carry on
    Make your body big and strong
    Born a man child of the sun
    Saw your work had just begun

    Found I had to stand alone
    Bless it now I've got my own
    So, if you find yourself in need
    Why don't you listen to these words and heed
    Be you giant or grain of sand
    Words of wisdom are ?Yes I can?

    You're a shining star
    No matter who you are
    Shining bright to see
    What you could truly be

    You're a shining star
    No matter who you are
    Shining bright to see
    What you could truly be
