Life Song[]

Business hours over, I leave the restaurant.
The night sky above dotted with twinkling stars.
Stars here, stars there, these stars I hate.
So cold and haughty, looking down at me.
"Your restaurant doesn't have a single star,"they seem to say, the wretched things.
"The food's good but you don't advertise."
Since when are you food critics, I ask?
Tomorrow at lunchtime, I'll take a break and remake the restaurant the way I dreamed.
Around and around, like a huge sunflower will my wonderful chimney go!
The passersby at dinnertime will be enticed by delicious aromas!
Go around and around, my sunflower chimney!
Spread the smell of food throughout the town!
My restaurant gets its first star.
How proudly it twinkles at the shop front!
It'll be two stars next year!
It's not because of you, night-sky stars...really.
Business hours over, I leave the restaurant.
I look up and you wink at me.
Wink, wink, wink, wink all you want!
One day I'll have a ☆☆☆☆☆ restaurant!
