When You Wish Upon A Star


When you wish upon a star,
Makes no difference who you are;
Anything your heart desires will come to you.
If your heart is in your dreams,
No request is too extreme;
When you wish upon a star as dreamers do.
Fate is kind, she brings to those who love
The sweet fulfillment of their secret longing.
Like a bolt out of the blue,
Fate steps in and sees you through;
When you wish upon a star,
Your dreams come true.
