Star Light, Star Bright

Star Light, Star Bright is a superstitious chant to bring good luck, said after seeing a falling or shooting star, or the first star of the evening. This tradition of wishing on a star for good luck probably dates back to the ancient world.

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