I've wished and wished and wished again
That cricket sang a lovely song
You may remember well
He said your wishes would come true
His voice clear as a bell

Yes, Jiminy could really sing
He wore a top hat too
He watched out for Pinocchio
Whenever his nose grew

That cricket may have been petite
But what a soothing voice
The only problem with that song
Was picking the right choice

What star would grant a wish for me?
There are so many there
I’ve wished and wished and wished again
I’ve searched most everywhere

But I can’t find that magic star
To make my dream come true
I’ve searched all of the galaxy
So what else can I do?

It’s been so long since I first tried
I’ve given up by now
I’m just a fool for listening to
A cricket anyhow
