"The First Time That I See A Shooting Star" is a song from "Tracy's Shooting Star". It's sung by Tracy, with backup from her friends, as she shows her excitement at seeing a shooting star.

A sing-along version of this song was featured on the DVD "Learning Life's Little Lessons".


Tracy: I view the world from up and down,
I've flown all over Tarrytown,
With all its wondrous sights,
Both near and far.

I've watched a lightning bug parade,
Heard a hummingbird brigade,
But I can guarantee,
The biggest thrill will be,
The first time that I see...
A shooting star.

Tracy and Others: Lift your eyes to the sky,
Keep your hopes up high.
Good things come, no matter where you are.

Tracy: I can hardly wait,
Tonight we'll celebrate,
The first time that I see...
Jay Jay: What a moment that will be...
Tracy: The first time that I see,
A shooting star.
The first time that I see,
A shooting star.

[Piano solo]

How I wonder where you are...


Tracy and Others: Lift your eyes to the sky,
And keep your hopes up high.
Tracy: Hang in there, no matter where you are.

Tracy: When the time is right,
We'll see that flash of light,
As it streaks across the sky...
Jay Jay: In the twinkling of an eye...
Tracy: The next time that I see,
A shooting star.
Snuffy: Hey, what about me?
Tracy and Others: The next time that we see,
A shooting star.


  • Tracy's line, "Heard a hummingbird brigade" references the events of "The Singing Meadow", which didn't air until later on.
