What you gonna be|when you grow up

What you gonna do|when your time is up

What you gonna say|when things go wrong

What you gonna do|when it's all over

There's a road

Long and windin'

The lights are blindin'

But it gets there

Don't give up

Don't look back

There's a silver linin'

It's out there somewhere

Everybody wants an answer

Everybody needs a friend

We all need a shining star

On which we can depend

So tonight we're gonna wish

Upon a star

We never wished upon before

What you gonna be|when you grow up

- To find what you're lookin' for|- What you gonna do when your time is up

There'll be times

In your life

Yeah, when you'll|be dancing and sh*t

But you ain't gettin' it

Don't get disillusioned

No, don't expect too much

'Cause if what you have|is all you can get

Just keep on tryin'|It just ain't happened yet

Everybody wants to be a winner

Everybody has a dream

We all need a shining star

When things ain't what they seem

So tonight we're gonna|wish upon a star

We never wished upon before

I'm sorry this|has taken so long.

Like you, we're puzzled|by your son's premature birth.
