The song Mel Torme, I would/could have written together.
THE absolutely "fun-est" track to make on this EP....
(Thanks Neil Young!)
Almost a kid's song..."Ok, boys & girls! All together, now!"


words/music: Bill Mallonee
1. I hear there were some fuzzy-faced animals there
when you showed up in the world
and every friend you've ever chose since
well, they've all been kicked to the curb
and to all those poor in spirit?
well, they ain't never seen anything like you...

Under the star
Baby, under the star
Yeah, under the star
Little baby under the star
Under the star...you come as you are
under the star......in your heart

2. you can look for him in hell
ah, but I hear he's already left
you can look for him in heaven
that was just a temporary forwarding address
if you really wanna meet 'em.
i hear he thinks the world of you

3. Now, kingdoms come & kingdoms go
but, it's all mostly just a bore
man's greed & man's killing
well, that's what we're mostly known for
what's all this about the faith of a child
and this "you gotta come as you are?"
