CART TO A STAR, by            
First Line: She hitched her cart to a star - poor thing
Last Line: Or you're liable to fall rather far!
Subject(s): Strength


She hitched her cart to a star—poor thing,
To the highest star in the blue,
Beyond this earthly realm, poor thing,
In the area angels knew!

She hitched her cart to a star—poor thing,
With her heart strings she bound it with care—
But she used all her strings on her cart—poor thing,
Insecure she fell through the air.

How she fell, how she fell, how she fell—poor thing,
In a pit, o, my soul so low,
Till she couldn't rebound to a level—poor thing,
Where ordinary mortals go!

And the moral of my fool song is this
If you hitch your cart to a star—
Save some of your heart strings to bind yourself in
Or you're liable to fall rather far!
