(I cannot translate Chinese to English, only Chinglish to English.    

But I like Chinglish.  The day you lose all your Chinglish is the day I can no longer see the original Chinese in you.  Added to that, perfection in English is not standard American English.  American English is a communication tool-- small errors are not a problem and new words and phrases are always emerging.  British English is used as a class identifier-- small errors are used to exclude people socially.)


When You Wish Upon A Star lyrics

When you wish upon a star
Makes no difference who you are
Anything your heart desires
Will come to you

If your heart is in your dream
No request is too extreme
When you wish upon a star
As dreamers do

Fate is kind
She brings to those who love
The sweet fulfillment of
Their secret longing

Like a bolt out of the blue
Fate steps in and sees you through
When you wish upon a star
Your dreams come true


Star Light, Star Bright

Star light, star bright,
The first star I see tonight;
I wish I may, I wish I might,
Have the wish I wish tonight.


Lucky Star
Madonna

You must be my lucky star
‘Cause you shine on me wherever you are
I just think of you and I  start to glow
And I need your light
And baby you  know

Starlight, star bright first star I see  tonight
Starlight, (starbright) make everything all right
Starlight, star  bright first star I see tonight
Starlight, (starbright) yeah

You must  be my lucky star
‘Cause you make the darkness seem so far
And when I’m  lost you’ll be my guide
I just turn around and you’re by my  side

repeat chorus

Come on shine your heavenly body tonight
‘Cause  I know you’re gonna make everything all right
Uh, come on shine your heavenly  body tonight
‘Cause I know you’re gonna make everything all right

You  may be my lucky star
But I’m the luckiest by far
You may be my lucky  star
But I’m the luckiest by far

Chorus...

Come on shine your  heavenly body tonight
‘Cause I know you’re gonna make everything all  right
Uh, come on shine your heavenly body tonight
‘Cause I know you’re  gonna make everything all right

(You may be my lucky star, I’m the  luckiest by far)
(You may be my lucky star, I’m the luckiest by far)
(You  may be my lucky star) You may be my lucky star
(I’m the luckiest by far) What  you do to me, baby
You know (You may be my lucky star)
But I’m the  luckiest by far

Starlight, star bright first star I see  tonight
Starlight, (star bright) make everything all right
Starlight, star  bright first star I see tonight
Starlight, (star bright)

Starlight,  star bright
You make everything all right
What you do to me,  baby
You’ve got to stay by my side tonight

(Starlight, star bright,  starlight, star bright)
(Starlight, star bright, starlight, star  bright)

Starlight, star bright, baby
Starlight, star bright
Stay by  my side tonight
What you do to me, baby
What you do, what you do to me,  baby
Stay by my side tonight
