Words by Edward Harrigan. Music by Dave Braham.

We represent a mighty cause, dat is to penetrate
De jungles of dark Africa, all for to educate:
The savage of the wilderness-dat's naked over dar-
Show him de incandescent light, all of de mystic star.

Look to de west when in distress, then form de letter Y,
Just say cuckoo, and loo-loo-loo, whenever you are dry;
Each gallant knight flush de red light,
In time of danger always bright
De secret call dat brings us all am S-T-A-R, star,
'Way, 'way over yonder where they make the thunder;
Shine on, oh, shine on, thou mighty mystic star,
Dere's Mars and Venus shining, clouds with silver lining;
Shine on, oh, shine on, de knights of de mystic star.

The Zulu tribes of Zanzibar they love to masticate
White missionary preacher man, and serve him on a plate;
They never eat de darkey meat we send to Africa,
The blackest kind of minister, all of de mystic star.- Chorus.

Old Darwin said de monkey was de first to walk and talk,
Had etiquette And manners, too, And eat soup with a fork;
De rang-a-tang he wore a bang And loved his pa and ma;
We ape him in our membership, all of de mystic star.-Chorus.

Now go up to de Central Park, look through de telescope,
And there behind de milky way, just like a cantaloupe,
In silver light both day and night is shining from afar
An emblem of our brotherhood, thou beaming mystic star.- Chorus.
