Oh for a starry, starry night
Heavenly lights burning bright
Shining forth their sheer delight
Oh behold what a wonderful sight.
They twinkle in the night time sky
When people look up and wonder why
Under which lovers laugh and cry
In days of old when time gone by.
To see them in the heavens above
Make lover’s hearts melt with thoughts of love
With cooing words like Turtle Doves
From sandy beach to sheltered cove.
Our starlight is both beautiful and true
A blaze in the heavens so dark, so blue
Their brightness makes all things new
Without our glorious starlight what would we do.
