  • I'm wishing on a falling star...
    Wondering where you are...

    [Chorus:]
    I wished for you on a falling star
    Wondering where you are
    Do I ever cross your mind
    In the warm sunshine
    She's from the city of angels
    Like Bette Davis, James Dean and Gable
    Never know what she means to me
    I fell for the girl that's on TV

    Met her at a gala affair
    She wore a green dress and everybody was there
    Felt outta place as she looked into my eyes
    Shook her hand around 9pm and now
    I'm never gonna be the same again
    Never have to be on a movie screen
    To be the leading lady in all my dreams
    Shoobie-do-wop and scooby snacks
    Met a fly girl and I can't relax
    The only problem is she's a movie star, oh
    My friends, they won't believe me
    If they could only see me
    At the risk of sounding cheesy
    I think I fell for the girl on TV

    [Chorus:]

    Everybody knows her name
    Want to take her picture and they're glad she came
    But I just want to be there when she's down, down
    (Be there when she's down)
    I don't want her autograph
    I just want to call her up and make her laugh
    Never had to be on the movie screen
    To be the leading lady in all my dreams
    Shoobie-do-wop and scooby snacks
    I met a fly girl and I can't relax
    Only problem is she's a movie star
    My friends, they won't believe me
    If they could only see me
    At the risk of sounding cheesy
    I think I fell for the girl on TV

    [Chorus:]

    I wished for you on a falling star
    I'm wishing on a star and I'm wondering where you are
    Wondering where you are
    Do I cross your mind in the warm sunshine

    Yeah, so I wished for you on a bright, shining star
    Everywhere I look, there you are
    It's the girl in the green dress
    She took my breath away
    And now I look to the sky for the better day
    To the beat why'all and scooby snacks
    I met a fly girl and I can't relax
    Never had to be on the movie screen
    'Cause she's the leading lady in all my dreams
