When I wish upon a star,
It’s not to find out where we are,
It’s not to learn what my day will hold,
It’s not about money, or gems, or gold.

When I wish upon a star,
I sometimes think we’ve gone too far,
Too far from kindness, friendship and caring,
Into a world of privacy and not daring …

When I wish upon a star,
It’s because I do know who we are,
We remember the towers and how they fell
And how loudly chimed America’s Liberty Bell.

When I wish upon a star
I wonder why we now have Czars;
I wonder how far we’ll let things go
Before we realize this ain’t no game show!

When I wish upon a star,
I hope we haven’t gone too far
From character, integrity, and simple kindness,
Far from our early moral brightness.

When I wish upon a star,
I wonder if there’s a superstar
Waiting in the wings, moral courage to bring,
America’s freedom bell again ringing!
