What are those things glittering away?!
They are stars very far, far away.
Stars are just big balls of gas,
shooting stars are stars that pass.
Stars are gems that lie in space,
and here we are looking at its glaze.

Those are stars that give us light
when we sleep in our beds at night.
A sun is just a bigger star,
that is also very, very far.
Now I think this is too much science for you,
now to the stars I say, toodle-oo!
