That's great and all, plus it's a very catchy tune but a wish is all it takes? I don't think so.
We live in a "wishing culture" and it's destroying our potential. Controversial, I suppose but I stick by my statement. Let me explain.
From our earliest memories we are taught to wish. Blow out your birthday candles "make a wish". See a shooting star, "make a wish". Write a letter to Santa Clause, "make a wish". Find one of those wishers in a field, "make a wish". In the U.S we put a lot of stock in wishes and dreams, heck our saying is "living the American dream."
We are still a country of dreamers but something happened along the way, between the "greatest generation" and now. The dreams are still there, but the actions have fallen out of favor. The discussions of American ingenuity and hard work seem to have gone to the wayside. You can find motivational speakers, websites, tv shows, life coaches, books, music that inspires us to dream and wish for something better but where are the same people, places and things telling us that the wish is just the beginning?
