  • You must be my lucky star
    'Cause you shine on me wherever you are
    I just think of you and I start to glow
    And I need your light and baby, you know

    Starlight, star bright, make everything all right
    Starlight, star bright, first star I see tonight
    Starlight, star bright, yeah

    You must be my lucky star
    'Cause you make the darkness seem so far
    And when I'm lost you'll be my guide
    I just turn around and you're by my side

  • Esskayess from Dallas, TxNo surprise that she "wrote" the thing herself...the words were stolen from a nursery rhyme. I can't stand songs with kindergarten lyrics. Steve Miller's 'Abracadabra' is equally unlistenable.
  • Jennifer Harris from Grand Blanc, MiI love Lucky Star! it's my favorite Madonna song. and video in the end where she pulls up her sunglasses.
  • Theresa from Murfreesboro, TnThe best of Madonna's earlier songs. She wrote this track entirely by herself.
  • Sum Sum from New DelhiThe lyrics of Madonna's "Starlight star bright" are believed to be of late 19th century American origin and the words allude to the fantasy that you can wish upon a star. This "lucky star" song has no doubt been used on many occasions to quieten a child or children ready for bedtime as they look out of the window waiting to see "Starlight star bright" first star I see tonight.
