Lyrics by Unknown
1912

Estrellita del lejano cielo,
que miras mi dolor, que sabes mi sufrir.
Baja y dime si me quiere un poco,
porque yo no puedo sin su amor vivir.

Tu eres estrella mi faro de amor!
Tu sabes que pronto he de morir.
Baja y dime si me quiere un poco,
porque yo no puedo sin su amor vivir.

po-or-que-e yo no pue-e-do / sin su a-mor / vi-vir /]

[Repeat Verse]

Tu e-res es-tre-lla / mi fa-ro de a-mor /
Tu sa-bes que pron-to / he de mo-rir /
Ba-ja y di-me / si me quie-re un po-o-co /
po-or-que-e yo no pue-e-do / sin su a-mor / vi-vir!

English Translation: Little Star

Little star of the distant sky,
You see my sadness, you know my suffering.
Come down and tell me if he loves me a little,
Because I cannot live without his love.

You are, star, my beacon of love!
You know that soon I shall die.
Come down and tell me if he loves me a little,
Because I cannot live without his love.

Chinese Translation: 小星星

小星星在遠處的天空
你看到我的悲傷, 你知道我的痛苦
降下來告訴我他愛我一點嗎
因為我的生活裏不能沒有他的愛

明星你是我愛的指路明燈
你知道我將不久於人世
降下來告訴我他愛我一點嗎
因為我的生活裏不能沒有他的愛
