Lyrics

Who is the maid with the buttercup hair?
Who sleeps on moonbeams and dances on air
With tears made of honey and a heart full of bunnies
Whose infinite virtues are known near and far
It's Mewni's own sweetheart, our dear Princess Star

And under the shimmer and rubies and pearls
Lies hidden a fierce and adventurous girl
The forces of evil that lurk in the night
Will cower in fear when this shooting Star...
...ignites!

[propulsive rock beat]

Weaving magic like a born spell-caster
And wreaking havoc like a natural disaster
She rocks her Narwhal Blast and Warnicorn Stampede
She's gonna earn her crown, so hail to the quee-e-e-een!

'Cause she's a rebel princess, she's the best
She's a ball of lightning in a hot pink dress
She's a thunderstorm roaring through the night
She's our shooting Star, and she's lighting up the sky!

Oooh-oooh!
Oooh-oooh-oooh!

[slow, heavy beat]

Shooting Star shining in the night so bright
She started to attract a pair of envious eyes
The villain rose up from behind the jester's cross
She drove him away but didn't know what she had lost

Glossaryck and her book of spells
How could she know Ludo would take 'em for himself?
She confessed to her parents, all full of dread
The King and Queen exchanged a look, and this is what they said
This is what they said, this is what they said:

"We will keep your silence for you
From the citizens of Mewni and the High Commission too
To keep the peace, we will play the game
Royal secret from royal shame
Royal secret from royal shame"

Royal secret – one last to tell
A princess under true love's spell

[upbeat rock beat]

Who is the boy in the earthly attire?
The prince of the princess's deepest desire
I don't need to show it, I think we all know it
But just to be certain, I'll say it again

Star Butterfly is in love with her best friend!
[quickly] And his name is Marco Diaz.
Forevermore!!!
