A shooting star is not a star
It's not a star at all
A shooting star's a meteor
That's heading for a fall

A shooting star is not a star
Why does it shine so bright?
The friction as it falls through air
Produces heat and light

A shooting star or meteor
Whichever name you like
The minute it comes down to earth
It's called a meteorite

A shooting star is not a star
It's not a star at all
(A shooting star is not a star)
A shooting star's a meteor
(It's not a star at all)
That's heading for a fall
(A shooting star's a meteor)
(That's heading for a fall)

A shooting star is not a star
Why does it shine so bright?
(A shooting star is not a star)
The friction as it falls through air
(Why does it shine so bright?)
Produces heat and light
(The friction as it falls through air)
(Produces heat and light)

A shooting star or meteor
Whichever name you like
(A shooting star, or meteor)
The minute it comes down to earth
(Whichever name you like)
It's called a meteorite
(The minute it comes down to earth)
(It's called a meteorite)
