FINALLY:

From www.ajokeaday.com - 08/05/14:

One day a little girl was sitting and watching her mother do the dishes at the kitchen sink. She suddenly noticed that her mother had several strands of white hair sticking out in contrast to her brunette head.

She looked at her mother and inquisitively asked, "Why are some of your hairs white, Mom?"

Her mother replied, "Well, every time that you do something wrong and make me cry or unhappy, one of my hairs turns white."

The little girl thought about this revelation for a while and then said, "Momma, how come ALL of grandma's hairs are white?"

When You Wish Upon a Star

Music by Leigh Harline (26 Mar 1907 – 10 Dec 1969); Lyrics by Ned Washington (15 Aug 1901 – 20 Dec 1976)
for
Walt Disney's (05 Dec 1901 – 15 Dec 1966) adaptation of Pinocchio, 1940

Originally sung by Cliff Edwards (14 June1895 – 17 July 1971) as Jiminy Cricket


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
