On your birthday
stretch for a sunbeam...
Reach for a star...
Go for a beautiful dream...

Pick out some wishes,
no matter how far,
or how hard to reach
they may seem...

Cherish some hopes
that are dear to your heart...

And as a new year comes in view,
treasure and keep them
and know from the start
that this year
you can make them come true!
