8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
Just imagine that you are back in childhoods' day.
Wishing on the evening star, on a load of hay.
It worked wonders for you then, who knows why or how?
Though you're older, try again, it can help you now.
Wishing will make it so,
Just keep on wishing, And care will go.
Dreamers tell us dreams come true, It's no mistake,
And wishes are the dreams we dream. When we're awake.
The curtain of night will part,
If you are certain, within your heart,
So if you wish long enough, wish strong enough,
You will come to know, Wishing will make it so.
