Wish on My Star by Jake Shimabukuro and Jennifer Perri

I heard a great new song today I wanted to share because I’m not sure it’s been heard that often outside some parts of the world like Japan, Hawaii and among ukulele lovers. The song is Wish on My Star, by ukulele god Jake Shimabukuro, featuring Jennifer Perri on vocals. It was on Jake’s While My Guitar Gently Weeps CD (video of his amazing rendition) and featured in the movie Hula Girls that was big in Japan and Hawaii. However, other indications like relative lack of YouTube videos and views on them seem to suggest it hasn’t been heard much. That’s why I’m writing a post to share.

I love the song that much already that I would replace a song in my Top 30 Love Songs, which I did as a Facebook meme in February, to make place for it! Enjoy!

I wouldn’t change a thing about you
I wouldn’t ask the green to be blue
I wouldn’t ask the birds not to fly
Or change a thing in the sky
Or turn hello to goodbye

I wouldn’t ask the birds not to sing
I wouldn’t ask the phone not to ring
I just couldn’t ask the wind not to blow
Or a boat not to row
Or a trio to go solo

You are amazing, just as you are
You are a flower in the spring
And a light each morning brings
And I adore you
Just as you are
You’re not the star that I wish on
You’re the wish on my star
