"Starfish" as written by Ken Block, Jeff Beres, Andrew Copeland, Ryan Carter Newell and Mark E. Trojanowski....
I saw a starfish on the ground
He was half buried in the sand
Just so out of place and ah
He was a long, long way from home

I was a long, long way from home
And so we talked a little while
Then I shook his hands, and I
I was a long, long way from home

And everything is wonderful
When everything's alright so alright
There we were
One less star tonight

Na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na
Na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na

We thought a better place to go
Might be the top of purple mountains
So close to outer space, and ah
We were a long, long way from home

We'd bring some records and a game
Might take a walk or read a book
But it's not the same, no ah
We're still a long long way from home

I saw a starfish on the ground
He was half buried in the sand
Just so out of place and ah
He was a long, long way from home

I saw a starfish on the ground
Oh, he was still buried in the sand
Now he's not so all alone
And he's finally going home
So I smiled and I shook his hands, and we were singin'

Na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na
Na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na

There we were one less star tonight
There we were one more star tonight

    General CommentThis is just a happy song... No real meaning behind it... almost Jimmy Buffett-esque in that sense... It's one of those that you can just put on and sing to and smile about.
