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,
