Makes no difference who you are,

Anything your heart desires,

Will come to you

If your heart is in your dream,

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.
