|Alternative Title||First line of text: here's a little blue star in the window and it means all the world to me;First line of chorus: There are stars in the high heavens shining with a promise of hope in their light|
VERSE 01: There’s a little blue star in the window,/And it means all the world to me;/There’s a lad who is true/To the Red, White and Blue,/And he’s serving his Flag o’er the sea./But it does not reflect golden sunshine,/Never gleams in the dead of night;/In the brightness of day,/As the night wears away,/It shines with its own holy light.
CHORUS: There are stars in the high heavens shining/With a promise of Hope in their light;/There are stars in the field of Old Glory,/The emblem of honor and right./But no star ever shone with more brightness, I know,/Than the one for my boy over the sea;/There’s a little blue star in the window,/And it means all the world to me.
VERSE 02: When the sun sinks to rest in the evening/And the stars in the dark’ning sky/Shine with soft, tender light,/Till the heavens are bright,/Then a glorious sight greets the eye/But the brightest of stars in the heavens/Does not shine with the brilliancy/As the little one there/In the window my pray’r/For my laddie over the sea.
