Stargazer, stargazer, why do you stare?
Has Taurus vanished somewhere up there?
Stargazer, stargazer, what do you see?
Are comets blazing far above me?
Stargazer, stargazer, I hear your song,
Echoing softly all the night long.
Stargazer, stargazer, who will you tell
If a star wobbles and falls in a well?
Stargazer, stargazer, if you retire,
Who’ll tell the children of heavenly fire?
Stargazer, stargazer, how will the crow
Tell me the names of the stars that you know?
Stargazer, stargazer, may your voice last!
May it be fiery and may it be vast!
