First star I see tonight
I wish I may, I wish I might
Have the wish I wish tonight

A banker's daughter or a runaway girl
A little lady or a honky-tonk Pearl
Has to find someplace in this world
Where she feels at home

A banker's daughter is so hard to deceive
A little lady is so hard to please
Honky-tonk Pearl wears her heart on her sleeve
And her heart will not grow cold

First star I see tonight
I wish I may, I wish I might
Have the wish I wish tonight

Here's a wish for a runaway girl
Here's a prayer for honky-tonk Pearl
Hope she finds someplace out of this world
Where she feels at home

First star I see tonight
I wish I may, I wish I might
First star I see tonight
I wish I may, I wish I might

I wish I may, I wish I might
Have the wish I wish tonight
