In Batman and the Outsiders (vol. 1) #16 (Dec. 1984), Katana sings a lullaby to Halo to help her fall asleep again after having a nightmare. The song she sings is about Mary Sunshine, which is an anthropomorphic name for the Sun. The song lyrics are:
Good morning, Mary Sunshine,
Why did you wake so soon?
You've frightened all the little stars
and shined away the moon.
