There's star with my name written upon it I know because I wrote my name on it. Came to me in a dream one starry night. How to get myself a star of the night. I adorned myself in filigree lace A diamanté tiara in place. Then made up my face like a beauty queen Glittered my hair with a silvery sheen. Ready for action I soared into space Leaving contrails above the earths face. You'd never believe the journey I had I met the moon man, he seemed kind of sad. He said he'd no beams, they’d died off and gone I said I'm sorry, try asking the sun. Next, angels said they'd no hark in their harps I asked nicely, are you having a laugh. I reached my star and on it wrote my name It was rather hard, the star was aflame. The journey back home it wasn't all that bad Tho' I landed down with a great big smack. Then I woke up, glad to still be alive That my name was written up in the skies. Anyone can do it, nothing to it Make up your mind, go on and just do it. * *
